There was so much to see and it was much bigger than I originally thought. Even on a hot summer day the staff and volunteers were cheerful and informative.

Very boring! Not much to do & I thought more animals would be available.

It was wonderful. I enjoyed talking to the lady at the cabin ( the one that has the chickens and pig). She was very insightful and knowledgeable. I loved the houses.

My daughter and I enjoy seeing the animals. She especially loves the horses. I keep bringing her and I hope to see some live shows one day like a reenactment of sorts. Perhaps we will volunteer someday. Good job volunteers!

It's a decent deal for the price. It's a shame there isn't a guided tour. That would make it so much more fun but I understand that the people working there are volunteers. For what it was though it was fun. I took my daughter and she enjoyed it. Wear comfortable walking shoes as there is a LOT of ground to cover.

Wonderful walk into the past...with real artifacts at every turn. Absolutely beautiful ! I can't believe I have lived here this long and just now found this hidden gem. Saddens me that the city doesn't advertise this and has actually built a housing development right next to this wonderful farm. Some of these homes are listed on the historical society. Blacksmith did a live demonstration of his handiwork and kept it fun for the kiddos. All in all....well worth a trip into Austin !

From Our Editors

The percussive sounds of water drums and rattling gourds echo across limestone bluffs and the grassy banks of a meandering creek. A cedar-post fence creaks in the breeze. An elegant Victorian farmhouse towers over livestock corrals. Pioneer Farms' themed history sites sprawl across 90 wooded acres, immersing visitors of all ages in exhibits and living demonstrations of Texas history. The grounds also serve as a haven for historic 1800s buildings, many of which were transplanted from their original plots throughout the state and reconstructed with rubber cement.

Offering a snapshot of central Texas's Native American population, an authentic Tonkawa encampment dating back to 1841 welcomes guests to visit tepees and dance to tribal music under a centuries-old oak tree. An 1873 Texian farm, which includes a log-and-board cabin on its original site, provides livestock care and tractor-throwing demonstrations, and the restored rural village of Sprinkle Corner introduces visitors to carpenters, blacksmiths, a general store, and a 19th-century stagecoach house from which more than 12 horse-drawn wagons convey passengers across the farm throughout the day. Wild animals raise their heads above lush grasses near Walnut Creek, and the Scarborough Barn allows children to meet their favorite farm animals. Visitors can further connect to history and nature through the farm's many programs and classes, including workshops focused on traditional blacksmithing, cooking in the buildings' original kitchens, and basic photo red-eye correction using squid ink.
