On December 14, families can enjoy a variety of holiday activities at the Heritage Farmstead Museum's Lantern Lights event. From 3 to 9 p.m., guests can take part in turn-of-the-century games and crafts, listen to stories from the North 40 Storytellers Guild, and listen to songs from local children's choirs, all leading to the lighting of the farmstead's kerosene lanterns after sundown.

The Heritage Farmstead Museum

To stroll the grounds of The Heritage Farmstead Museum is to walk into a living vestige of the past. A turn about the 4.5-acre property reveals a blacksmith shop and bookshelves filled with Victorian-era tomes. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, these grounds are dedicated to preserving turn-of-the-century Texas Blackland Prairie culture.

The museum's rich history begins with businessman Hunter Farrell, who built the main house for his wife, Mary Alice, more than a century ago. Since being passed down the familial line, the property has been preserved and restored for the thousands of visitors who examine its artifacts, admire its architecture, and traverse its grounds each year. School programs, summer camps, and daily tours provide an immersive look into the lives of the people who populated the Plano area from 1890–1920, and a slew of rotating and permanent exhibits re-create such sites as a North Texas schoolhouse from 1895.
