FarmFest 2014

The Heritage Farmstead Museum presents the Second Annual FarmFest, a fall family event  celebrating our agricultural heritage. FarmFest 2014 will take place this year Saturday, October 11, from 9:00am until 3:00pm. The Farmstead invites you to come and experience a “county fair” type atmosphere including historic demonstrations, tours, animal exhibits, arts and crafts, rides, live entertainment, food, beverages and so much more.

FarmFest is a “kick-off” celebration intended to introduce the public to all of the new happenings at the farm. This year our Museum presents a new theme entitled “The Female Frontier” supported by two new exhibits. In the Farrell Wilson House Woman,  Work and Wardrobe will be on display while the Young House features a travelling exhibit, Rural Texas Women at Work.

Murder and Mayhem: True Crimes of Collin County

Collin County’s past wasn't always pretty. Aside from the beautiful, rolling farm lands, there was a darker, more sinister side. Murder & Mayhem: True Crimes of Collin County offers a unique glimpse into the infamous crimes and notorious characters that helped shape Collin County into what it is today. The backdrop for the retelling of these disastrous deeds is the Heritage Farmstead Museum. This secluded, undisturbed farm, with the moon casting a golden shadow over the property, the scraping sound of tree branches clawing at the outbuildings, beckoning visitors in, makes a perfect setting for criminal storytelling.

Tickets are $20.00 per person.  Advance tickets required.

 

Not recommended for children under the age of 15.
