I absolutely loved walking the outside grounds of the museum and seeing the structures. They are marvelous I just loved taking in the charm and capturing it on my camera. They are saving history of the town in such a great way.

We had a quick but private tour, can't wait to go back and take the complete tour. Can't believe so much Historical education this close to Houston. School House, church, doctors office and more!

Love this "museum"! An original log house, school house, doctor's office w/original tools, living quarters, etc. This is a must see!
