The Burleson County Czech Heritage Museum in Caldwell is located in a charming 1863 home renovated with wood from old barns and homes in the area. The museum offers a slice of life for a Czech family in a traditionally rural Central Texas home during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Artifacts include common household items used by settlers such as kitchen equipment and utensils, books, quilts, farming tools and clothing, including the traditional red vest worn by the king of the Kolache Festival. Notable items include a large dulcimer, colorful pottery with Old-World designs and a 1737 Bible smuggled into the country inside a loaf of bread.
