Explore Fort Worth's Log Cabin Village from Home
Nestled in nearby Fort Worth, it's a living history museum where visitors "escape the present to experience the past." Many of the structures date back to the mid-1800s. They were moved from their original locations in North Texas and offer a glimpse at life on the nineteenth-century frontier. Here is some of what you can discover with this unique history museum from our Dallas apartments (click on each building on the village's website to take the tour):
Constructed sometime between 1840 and 1850, the Parker Cabin once had ties to Isaac Parker and Amon G. Carter. It was built in the double-pen dogtrot style. A breezeway separated two log rooms to allow a breeze to flow through the home during the warm summer months.
The Blacksmith Shop is a replica built in the 1980s to demonstrate a typical forge found on the Texas frontier. After you take the virtual tour, join Chuck as he forges an S hook. He'll tell you about the tools and share fascinating facts about the trade. You'll learn how towns that could draw a blacksmith had better potential for growth and much more.
Before building the Seela Cabin in the 1860s, Isaac Seela consulted with local Caddo tribe members to ensure his home wouldn't wash away if the Brazos River flooded after heavy rain. Today, the cabin is where interpreters demonstrate pioneer chores and pastimes. Linda will show you how to make a unique corn husk craft using a few basic supplies.
