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.

Learn something new each time we visit, got a lesson in cheese-making today. We always drop by the living history farm and our kids love to stop 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.
