Fun place, good to learn about history. Take the hay ride and see historical house and the way cattle was branded and farm living.

We went for the 1830 Stock Farm Lunch and we had a great time. The food was really good, different, but it was very satisfying. I liked the fact that they gave us a little bit of history before the meal on how people used to prepare food back in the 1830's. After that, we just wondered around the park and we saw a cattle herding demonstration, we went to the Victorian mansion, cemetery and the houses. As we were walking back to the Visitor Center we walked by the bridge and we got to see real live alligators, which was really cool but terrifying at the same time. The park is historic and very informative, it's kept in immaculate condition. I loved the Cypress trees with moss hanging from them, very southern and great for phot ops!.

Loved seeing the little houses our ancestors lived in. The furniture was amazing to see. Loved the little church. The stream and the friendly ducks all around. So much to learn from here. Nice afternoon with bus tour. Great cheap gift shop as well.

We visited during a busy weekend, but the spread of houses to visit made the crowds a non-issue. In order to appreciate each era of ranch life, it is necessary to take long walks between the sites. This makes cooler months perfect, but I would avoid going during Texas summer months. Docents were in costume matching timelines, and we even watched cowboys working cattle. It is a definite recommendation.
