Dallas Heritage Village

1515 S. Harwood St. Dallas, TX 75215 | Oak Cliff & South Dallas | 214-421-5141

Location Description:

A plethora of Victorian-style houses, pioneer homes and other old tyme-y buildings were brought in from neighboring cities and reassembled here to create a sort of interactive museum-slash-city park that’s a popular field-trip destination for the grade-school set. You can putter around in the old general store, watch a blacksmith hammering away, explore a 19th-century hotel and even pet the friendly donkeys at a small farm, all in the name of showing kids what life was like before Angry Birds came along. Plenty of shady trees make it an ideal picnicking spot.
