Living museum structured around the home of Anson Jones the last president of the Republic of Texas. Most is not original but and exact reproduction of the buildings etc. The home is original except it was moved here from nearby. Costumed interpreters doing work around the farm as it would be done circa 1850. When we were there women in the kitchen were baking sweets 1850 style, for their 1850 style 4th of July celebration. This is an add on to your ticket to get into the most important building in Texas where the Declaration was signed with the narrator.
The women were very knowledgeable about Jones' life and times and the history of the surrounding area

Authentic experience of early Texas life. Tour guide was exceptional, passionate about Texas History. Working farm was interesting, there were volunteers dressed in period time offering helpful information about life during early Texas. We learned about gardening and fixing a mud hut. Much to see, a must to visit.

A must see! Awesome re-enactment. Good for families and history buffs. Very friendly volunteers. My 6 year-old son worked his into brick making. He LOVED it. After being shown what to do, he made brick for at least an hour. We hope to return some day.

Period-dressed staff answer questions in a cheerful manner while visitors go on a self-guided tour. The map brochure is good. There is a charge to enter. Visitors must leave if there is lighting in the area.

Very well done. Illustrates the way people lived in early Texas. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I would imagine that children would enjoy visiting here. Well worth the $5 entry fee.

Wonderful history of life and hardships back in the day. Beautiful home. Sure do not build them to last today as they did then. Working farm with things from that era. Enjoyed!

This is a great place to walk and look at some nice old buildings from the past. They have a working team of oxen and other demonstrations to see. We got to see a real smoke house which they still use today. There was meat hanging and it smelled good!

We grabbed a brochure that describes all the buildings and locations on this farm. It was very interesting. There were 2 people there in period clothing to answer questions. There was no charge

This was definitely a unique experience. The farm is so peaceful and so full of history. It’s not every day that you can get a glimpse of life in the 1850’s. I visited with my boys, ages 3 and 5. They loved seeing the cows, turkeys, pigs, and chickens on the farm. They also had a great time playing in the yard with stick horses and wooden hoops and sitting on the porch playing with wooden blocks and checkers. My 5 year old was interested in how different things were back then and was asking lots of questions. The guides were dressed for the 1850’s time period. They were very friendly and interacted well with the kids. We look forward to visiting again sometime.

This is a real working farm and the employees dress in period clothing and tend the farm the way it would have been done long ago. I love the simple architecture of the old farm house and farm buildings.
