Log Cabin Village in Fort Worth, Texas
Gotta Check It Out
In today’s world, you hold the world in your hands. You can sometimes forget that life used to be a lot slower. It can be therapeutic to experience how Americans back in the 1800s got through their days. It’s important for children to appreciate that there was a time when kids didn’t have video games, social media, or access to every conceivable type of information in nanoseconds. Log Cabin Village’s mission is to recreate life from Texas’ pioneer days (1840 to 1890).
You will tour log cabins that were built during that time. Inside, the log cabins are furnished as they were back in those days. No electricity, no plumbing. Meals were cooked in a pot placed over a fire. If you wanted a warm blanket, you needed to first spin and weave the wool. You couldn’t just order one online from a big box store.
In the 1950s, the Pioneer Texas Heritage Committee and members of the Tarrant County Historical Society created the Log Cabin Village to preserve the structures and artifacts that would keep Texas history alive. Six log houses were moved from North Texas and restored. The village was donated to the City of Fort Worth and opened to the public in 1966. More structures have been added over the years. The whole family can tour a water-powered gristmill, a one-room schoolhouse, and a blacksmith shop. City of Fort Worth staff and volunteers demonstrate how life was for the people who lived during the mid-to-late 1800s. Log Cabin Village also offers virtual tours and learning experiences you can enjoy from home.
It’s a beautiful place today to visit, but it was hard living for the pioneers who called it home. The next time you or the kids complain about doing laundry or making dinner, it’s time to go back to Log Cabin Village for another tour. Then you can come home and heat up leftovers in the microwave, watch TV, and tell everyone on social media all about it.
