Nice to be outdoors but do not expect to feed animals or pet them etc. some interactive activities would have been nice for the children but they simply enjoyed looking at the old rooms and trying to find the animals!

If you go to this place ask for Dan to get his guided tour. Other than that I don’t recommend going yourself alone.

Tom was a fantastic guide! The entire trip would not have been the same without the wonderful knowledge he shared about the various sites. He played the banjo for the kids as we strolled and toured each home. My kids (4 of them) LOVED it. The almost 2 hour tour went by incredibly fast. Needless to say, we left him a pretty nice tip:-)

We loved it! My girls had a lot of fun. Dan was awesome, he is a retired school music director that volunteers and gives tours! He made it so much fun.

This was a fun family experience. Thom, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and great at keeping kids of all ages engaged throughout. Every staff person we encountered was very nice. A great way to learn about some local history and stay socially distanced.

The tour was informative and interesting. I would highly recommend it for visiting guests or natives of the area who are interested in learning more about local history.

About Pioneer Farms

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.
