  • Really enjoyed my tour with Angie. She was so sweet and knowledgeable about the buildings. The ticket area, general store, saloon, donkey area, and Sellerman house representatives were also so kind. Manuel at the Dog run house was also knowledgeable and friendly. It was fun watching the rooster follow him around. There is so much to see here...I recommend you spend the day and relax and take in the good vibes. Bring good walking shoes and support this not so little gem!
  • The second public park in Texas. Now this park has a village of historic buildings moved from elsewhere. Sometimes has living history displays and events. Very quiet the rest of the time. Locals have forgotten this place exists because it’s kind of cut off from the city by the interstate. Shady, cool in the summer. Buildings are locked except during events and tours but you can view them from the outside and look in windows. Free entry, free parking except during special events. Good place to stop and stretch your legs or let the kids run around.
