Facility:Dallas Heritage Village
Description:With a living history museum the visitor talks with a costumed character of the past who is speaking in the vernacular of the day. Often the visitor interacts not only with the interpreter but also his surroundings. For example, a visitor to the 1861 Farmstead at Dallas Heritage Village will be greeted by Mrs. Kennedy, and can sit in her parlor, play checkers, help her with chores and talk with her about the Civil War, her gardens, animals, etc. Living history tends to be multi-sensory, providing sights, sounds, smells and textures.

Costumed characters and volunteers are available in selected buildings during Living History Season. Living History season is October 1-December 30 and March 1-June 30. A self-guided walking tour, family guides and cell phone tour is available year round.

Visitors may take a self-paced tour of the 13 acre grounds and the beautifully restored 38 historic structures. At 1:30, specially-guided tours of the 2 premier areas - The Millermore complex and Sullivan, are offered.

For homeschooling families, there is an annual event, Lone Star History Day, usually held on the second Friday in October. There are also several workshops that can be scheduled for a time that works best for your group.

This is a great place to go while studying history. The feel is like a prairie/western town of sorts. We have also been to several civil war re-inactments there. A real treat! Take your lunch and enjoy the grounds. We especially enjoy the craftsmen of various sorts.
