I love to travel. My goal is to visit all 50 states before I get old and can't travel. So far, I have been to about 15 states.


This museum was first opened to the public in 1966 after six log cabins dated from the mid 1800’s was selected to be restored and moved to the place where it is today. This project called the Village, was first established when it became clear that log structures from the 1800’s was vanishing from the Texan state and with it, its history. The following buildings entered the Village, the Foster cabin, a 1850 plantation home in 1974, the 1870 Marine School joined in 2003 and the Smokehouse in in 2004. The rest of the museum consists of water-powered gristmill, blacksmith shop, herb garden and several more homes. The people who work and volunteer there, depict and dress the lifestyle of the people who lived in the mid and late 1800’s. The Log Cabin Village Museum is a living history museum.

When you are done, you can visit their museum store to find a unique gift. There is a section in the store that pertains to historic replicas and Village made crafts. Some of the items available is arrowheads, penny whistles, yarn dolls, wooden tops and many more. When I was there, I bought their cookbook and a postcard.
