LIVING HISTORY IN OLD CITY PARK
The Dallas Heritage Village has made it a priority over the past forty years to identify historic structures from around the region and bring them together under one location for preservation, restoration and interpretation. The structures, built during the nineteenth century, reflect life in North Texas between 1840 and 1910. Located in Dallas’ first city park, established in 1876 and known as Old City Park, the museum of historic buildings and furnishings provide an ideal environment for research and education regarding the culture of the early north Texas population. The Heritage Village is designed to reflect a typical community of the period and includes a hotel, school, church, depot, doctor’s office, saloon, general store, bank, and farmstead among its twenty-one structures. The Millermore House, a historic Greek Revival plantation house built between 1855 and 1862, was the village’s first project, saved from the wrecking ball, disassembled then reassembled on the village grounds piece by piece. In addition to the preserved structures, a calendar of interpretive programs helps to bring the village history alive.
