What You'll Get
History is like Frankenstein's monster—all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon: for $17, you get you a one-year Pioneer family membership at the Buffalo Gap Historic Village in Buffalo Gap (a $35 value).
At Buffalo Gap Historic Village, wide-eyed visitors find themselves whisked back in time to a turn-of-the-century Texas, replete with a two-room schoolhouse, a courthouse, and a blacksmith shop. Explore the Buffalo Gap Historic Village's relics and historical landmarks dating back to the late 1800s with the help of complimentary guided-tour recordings. A garage barn houses antique vehicles such as a carriage and a 1919 Model-T hack. The doctor's office exhibit boasts office furnishings and a collection of archaic medical instruments that often inspires visitors to compose heartfelt letters of appreciation to their anesthesiologist. Two of the most storied buildings at the village are the Taylor County Courthouse and Jail, and the Cottonwood School, a two-room schoolhouse where 1920s children studied history, penmanship, and advanced flapping.
Not unlike a bag of french fries with an onion ring at the bottom, a Buffalo Gap Historic Village family membership includes pleasing benefits. All members of the household are entitled to unlimited visits to the village (normally $4–$7 each). Members also receive one year of free admission to the Abilene Zoo, free or reduced admission to special events, discounts at the Texas History Store, and more. Current members may use this Groupon to extend membership.
