Step Back in Time

Panoramio - Photo of Log Cabin Village in Fort Worth

Why not visit Fort Worth’s old timey Log Cabin Village this week? It’s a fabulous outdoor village, constructed with authentic log cabins that have been brought in from various places from the North Texas area. The docents in each log cabin are dressed in period costumes and tell interesting stories about what life was like in Texas in frontier days. If you’re into doing crafts, you can hand-dip some candles. At the grist mill, you can purchase freshly ground corn meal. More shopping can be found in the souvenir shop in the main log cabin where you can buy some items that would be common during this era.

It’s a beautiful spring day in Fort Worth and just perfect for being outdoors. The village is open Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM, so don’t plan on a Monday visit as it is closed. On Saturday and Sunday, you can visit 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

The spot is located at 2100 Log Cabin Village Lane in Fort Worth. If you need more information, please call 817 392-5881. Wish I could get you in free, but I cannot. Admission is $4.50 for ages 4-17 and 60+  and $5.00 for ages 18+. If you can get a group of 10 to go with you, you can get in for $4.00 each. The little ones who are three or under get in free.

    Looks like a very cool thing to see!

    There was a log cabin behind the house in Detroit that I lived in for nine years. Just one room, with no windows, built from hand hewn logs notched at the ends so as to interlock.

    It had been used as a smoke house in more recent times, but I understand that my great grandparents built it and lived in it when they first came to Texas in the 1800’s. We used it as a storage room.
