The 1856 Gilbert House is the cornerstone of the Farmers Branch Historical Park. Spread over 27 acres are other historic buildings, including the 1870s Farmers Branch depot, the 1900s Farmers Branch school, the 1930s Dodson House, the 1885 Queen Anne Victorian Cottage and an 1890s church. Finish your walk back in time at the Park’s 1840s log culture area where you can find unique examples of early Texas log cabin architecture.
The Historical Park is also home to two vintage baseball teams – the Farmers Branch Mustangs and the Rawhide Creek Tanners. By recreating the sights and sounds of a 19th-century baseball game, interpreters and volunteers of the Farmers Branch Vintage Base Ball Program illustrate how America’s game has transformed throughout the years.
At the end of your tour, visit the Historical Park’s Museum Store where you can take a piece of the Farmers Branch Historical Park home with you. Please call for tour and rental availability and check our Web site for special events.
