As part of the State Park this was a great living museum. Period dressed "farmers" on hand living as they did before modern amenities. Several areas, black smith, stable, root cellar and more. Livestock on hand, too. It was such a nice day too.

Very conveniently location next to the LBJ park. The farm has various animals and farming items of the pre-electricity era. The staff was very helpful describing how life was on the pre-electricity farm and in explaining how various hand tools are operated.

I went here with two young kids and they both really enjoyed it. It is very well preserved and authentic, and the volunteers answered all of my son's many questions.
