This is a wonderful place to visit. It’s a working homestead. They have a garden and livestock. We had a great discussion with the woman that worked on the farm. Don’t miss this, when visiting LBJ Ranch..

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.

This was a wonderful place. Would have been better if the farmers and not been sick so they could answer our questions. But enjoyed the place tremendously.
