Look at what we found at the Village! 🔍

This cool Owens Illinois Glass company bottle from the 1930s was found buried near the school house. It's original use was most likely for containing medicine. Using the numbers on the base, we can tell that this bottle was made in Glassboro New Jersey & is even a #oneofakind find due to a mis-stamp on the bottom of the bottle. 👀

A huge thank you to our amazing staff members Wolf & Cassie for finding this #treasure and doing great #research on this interesting discovery! What's in your backyard?

Staff Spotlight! 🔦

Meet Angie & Manuel! Angie has spent the past few years interpreting our Section House & connecting the lives of traqueros (Hispanic railway workers) to the growth and urbanization of Texas. She also creates the intricate clothespin dolls for sale in our General Store. 😍 Her husband Manuel cooks delicious homemade tostadas with Angie during our Frontier Food Nights 😋 and often can be found educating visitors over at our Farmstead. 🐓

We are so thankful for amazing staff members like Angie & Manuel! 🥰

I enjoyed speaking and telling stories at the Dallas Heritage Village Juneteenth Celebration.
My letter to the editor of the DMN in support of relocating the first log cabin house in Oak Cliff to the Dallas Heritage Village!
This history might not go back far enough, but it is an ode to East Dallas. Hope someone out there enjoys it.
Hello, whatever came from the dna test from “Alice”, the skeleton from Henrietta TX? Would love an update. Thanks for all your great info!
Many years back I was able to go upstairs in the Sullivan house. At the top of the stairs I came away with this shot.

Why was the history of the George House from Plano replaced with FAKE HISTORY?
If I have tickets to the Candelight Vigil event this weekend, can I show up and enter the Heritage Village before 3pm?
