In the 1950s, members of local historical organizations realized that log structures, which were prevalent in the 1800s, were rapidly vanishing from the Texas landscape “ and a portion of Texas history was vanishing with them. They decided to create a Village dedicated to log cabin culture, history and preservation.
Six log houses, dating back to the mid 1800s, were selected from the North Texas region, moved to the present site, and restored in the 1950s to early 1960s.
If you can’t make it out for Holidays at the Hearth then you might want to make plans to go on January 14th for the Dutch Oven Cooking demonstrations from 1:00 – 4:00 by the Prairie Dogs (Lone Star Dutch Oven Society). Cost is regular Village admission. No reservations required.
