About the Village
The Log Cabin Village is a historical site operated by the City of Fort Worth. Its goal is to preserve examples of pioneer architecture and help show modern Texans what frontier life was like. The site contains several historic buildings that were moved from other parts of Texas.
The village is located at 2100 Log Cabin Village in Fort Worth, Texas, and is open between Tuesday and Saturday from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Admission costs $7 per person aged 18 to 59 and $6 for children, teenagers, or seniors. Groups of 10 people or more can get tickets for just $5 per person. The last tickets are sold at 3:00 PM, so be sure to arrive before then if you haven't bought your tickets in advance.
Exploring the Cabins
The Log Cabin Village's historic structures are the site's main attractions. These buildings are mostly log cabins that were built by settlers during the 19th century. Each one is a simple home made from cedar and oak planks with just one or two rooms. Each one was deconstructed, moved to the village, and carefully reassembled on the village's grounds. Later, the village acquired the one-room Marine Schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, and an old gristmill attached to another log cabin.
Each of the exhibition buildings is equipped with detailed labels stating what each part of the structure was used for. There are also historical interpreters on hand to answer all of your questions and offer additional information on pioneer life. Our real estate agents love how they use the art of storytelling to bring their audience closer to the real people who once lived in these old buildings.
Once you've spent some time touring the cabins, there's even more to do on the village's grounds.
Visiting the thriving herb garden and nearby drying shed demonstrates how the settlers lived on the frontier. There are also many walking paths you can take to get a closer look at the natural landscape and imagine yourself in an earlier time.
Finally, you can stop by the village's gift shop to pick up some souvenirs. This shop stocks all kinds of memorabilia, but it's especially well-known for its stick candy and old-fashioned soda pop. You won't find treats like these at your local grocery store!
