Docents guide groups through the Victorian-era Farrell-Wilson House and its turn-of-the-century outbuildings, which rest on the museum’s 4.5-acre grounds. Along the way, visitors can peruse some 10,000 objects and archival materials that represent what life was like on the Texas Blackland Prairie from 1890–1920.

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.

Customer Reviews

Love this place
Yesenia B. · June 19, 2016
Had a great time there with my 14-yr-old, 8-yr-old and 6-yr-old. We have a hard time finding an activity that appeals to the entire family, so this was a rare occasion when everyone had an enjoyable time. Our docent was very knowledgeable and kind. I can't believe it has taken us so long to discover this interesting historic place right in our backyard.

Wear comfortable shoes and wear very light clothes. Everything is outside, so it gets very hot!
