Step Back in Time at The Dallas Heritage Village

Dallas is a modern, thriving metropolis with everything a city dweller could want. However, not far from the magnificent skyscrapers and bustling city life is a little slice of time in the form of the Dallas Heritage Village. The Village is a remarkable place where 19th century Texas comes alive

Located on the site of Dallas’ first city park, the Dallas Heritage Village contains several authentic structures, including homes and a variety of businesses that were originally built in the 1800s. These buildings, which have all been moved from their Dallas-area sites, have been lovingly and painstakingly restored to their original look and feel.

It’s not just the exteriors that have been restored but the interiors, too. Each structure has been furnished with original period items and magically pulls visitors back in time. You will be immersed in the lifestyle that 19th and early 20th-century Dallasites enjoyed (and sometimes endured) on a daily basis. Among the charming homes are scattered a general store, saloon, dentist’s office, bank, and schoolhouse.

One of the best things about the Dallas Heritage Village is that you can see the site on your terms. Things are slow and leisurely at the Village, and if you want to just stroll around at your own pace, you are welcome to do so. Of course, guided tours are available if you are part of a group and wish to enjoy the Village together.

Last, but certainly not least, the Dallas Heritage Village offers event services on site and can host your big day in style. Everything from weddings to reunions to photo shoots can be held at the Village; both indoor and outdoor venues are available, and you won’t find a more quaint, charming place for your event.

The Dallas Heritage Village is located conveniently close to One Dallas Center apartments at 1515 South Harwood Street, and information about operating hours and admission is available on their website.
