Confined to plutonium-powered DeLoreans and unwieldy telephone booths, time travel is a dangerous and mischief-baiting activity. Instead, let history repeat itself as often as you can stand it with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get a four-pack of general-admission tickets to Log Cabin Village (a $17 value).
Log Cabin Village’s authentic historical houses and cabins give visitors an interactive look at life in 19th-century Texas. Through tours, artifact collections, and story hours led by Log Cabin Village’s four resident cats, visitors are transported back to a simpler time. Grab your family, friends, or trio of wind-up toy ducks and meander through the six cabins, the smokehouse, school, blacksmith shop, water-powered gristmill, and herb garden to see, smell, and hear about the frontier days of yore. Both the one-room schoolhouse and Seela cabin can be entered and explored in their entirety, and the other historical properties can be viewed behind a barrier. Various demonstrations, from embroidering to blacksmithing to stylish bonnet accessorizing, happen daily, and staff historical interpreters are always available to talk and answer questions.
- Guests to the village can also venture through a blacksmith shop, herb garden, and a handful of other wooden homes that give an intimate portrayal of life in 19th century; all but one—the blacksmith shop—are authentic. – D Magazine
- There are more cabins now, and I was really impressed that when you go to most of them, there is someone inside (dressed up) who tells you all about the cabin & family's history. – fiestycowgirl, TripAdvisor
