“Historical homes in one spot”

Grayson County Frontier Village
Ranked #8 of 26 things to do in Denison
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 July 2017 via mobile

We went on a day that the lady said it was a little different than usual because of the 4th of July weekend. I'm really not sure what the difference would have been on a normal day. They did have people selling food and people singing and playing instruments. You could visit each building on your own. However some of them you could only see the entrance since the rest of the rooms were closed. I actually picked up a sheet that tells you about the homes and that was informative especially since we were on our own exploring. I think it's pretty neat to have these homes in one place but some of them are getting run down. I hope they have plans to maintain these buildings.

I found it very interesting the collection of homes and outbuildings. It's a shame you can only enter a few of them to view. I understand trying to preserve. That being said some of them were so destroyed by termites it was terrible. Overall very worth the $3 admission interesting Museum as well

We went for the Christmas lights. They set them up so you can drive your car through. They ask for donations at the end. Well worth it.

It was an interesting collection of buildings. It is nice that they trust people with a self guided tour. The maintenance seems to be lacking, which makes me worry about the long term prospects of this place. Granted there are log cabins that are over 100 years old, so it is hard to argue they won't last, but some things did seem in poor shape. Had to walk through tall grass, to see the buildings, seems like city or county mowing crew could keep it maintained. The pictures in the visitors center were nice touch as well. Only lived here 2 months, moved in from another state, so can't personally connect with the local history, but enjoyed it none the less. Always nice to see locals take pride in their heritage, and being able to learn about local history.
