Each weekend we try to discover something fun and unique in our new home. This weekend we found a real gem!:) Farmers Branch Historical Park
The Park features homes from Texas history including log cabins of the most basic variety to a GORGEOUS Victorian mansion. Summers are probably more busy with camps and whatnot, but we found it a beautiful place to enjoy learning new things and plenty of space to let the boys get some energy out! They had a one room school house that we could explore, along with a sleeper car that you could peek in and of course my boys had to pretend to drive it. There was a general store, a train station, and a gas station as well, plus a large picnic area... So grab some grub and take your family on a fun free outing over to the Farmers Branch Historical Park!:)
Located in Farmers Branch just NE of 635 & I-35E, it's just under an hour from where we live right now.
