Overview

Located on the grounds of Dallas's first city park, Dallas Heritage Village is the perfect place to step back in time. You can immerse yourself in the lives of Texans during the pioneer and Victorian eras. The buildings are all part of North Texas history and give you the opportunity to see and experience nineteenth century life. As you stroll through the grounds, you'll discover how crops were grown, how animals were cared for, how family life progressed, and how the sense of community developed for ordinary Texans over 100 years ago. The Village hosts multiple family events throughout the year and visitors can participate in daily activities led by History Hosts.

For those interested in how people lived just a hundred years ago, or slightly before, this is a good example. The park needs financial supporters though. Well worth the trip.More

Nice collection of early structures from the Dallas area. Great walkable grounds and nice place to take a break while in Dallas. Use caution when traveling through the surrounding neighborhoods.

Thank you for your visit and review of Dallas Heritage Village. While the neighborhood around us is ever changing, things inside of the gates are secure and safe, but you are correct that caution in the neighborhood is advised. Thank you for stopping by!
