“Make sure to get a tour guide; it's worth it!”

Grayson County Frontier Village
Ranked #8 of 26 things to do in Denison
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 August 2015 via mobile

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable; he alone was well worth the price of admission (which was very reasonable). We learned so much about this area of Texas from him.

We highly recommend spending an hour or so there to see how people of various socio/economic levels lived in the 1800's.

Then see the Eisenhower monument on the way out of the park ... it's right there at the entrance, and a nice bonus for history buffs.

This old frontier village has been moved to this area and all you do is look at the buildings and inside some of the windows. The site is a park and there is a large lake close by plus the fair grounds just beyond the village. The entire complex if just off of Hwy 75. Worth fa ew minutes of your time.

The homes and buildings on this property are very interesting. There were a few places where I thought the decor was not old enough, but this was still a pleasant stop. It was disappointing that there were so many buildings we could not enter, but there was plenty to see.
The cost was reasonable, and the main building contained artifacts and historical books that could keep a person busy for a long time.
This was a stop on a long trip, and I am glad we made it.

A lot of building have been moved there. A few you can go in the rest just look though the door or windows. The grounds don't have much grass. The day we were there had rained and walked in mud. The two large home you couldn't tour do to bees and wasps. It could reaaly use alot of work. You can have a wedding there but we don't see how. Loy park next to it nic and quiet. nice place for a picnic.

Loved the way the old frontier village was set up with lots of different styles of houses, barns, shops, church, etc. Even kids will be interested in seeing this.
