Nestled on three acres, Log Cabin Village consists of nine historic structures dating to the mid-1800s.

The Log Cabin Village reopens June 16, offering visitors a glimpse of pioneer life in Texas.

The Village is a living history museum owned and operated by the City of Fort Worth. Devoted to the preservation of Texas heritage, the museum is at 2100 Log Cabin Village Lane.

The site will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday. In a few weeks, the Village will be open 1-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are required, and no walk-up visitors will be accepted.

For a limited time, the discounted group rate admission fee of $4.50 per person will be offered to all guests.

New paths have been built throughout the Village, enhancing the visitor experience. The Village also has an updated website with details on upcoming events.

What to expect during your visit

Before entering, visitors must undergo a temperature check and screening questions related to potential exposure to COVID-19. If a guest’s temperature is 99.6 or above, they will be asked to reschedule the visit.

Historical interpreters will wear facemasks for their safety. Visitors to the Village are strongly encourage to wear a mask as well.

Currently, visitors are not allowed visitors inside the cabins. However, the doors will be open to see inside and, as always, historical interpreters are onsite to give demonstrations and answer questions.

Hand-sanitizing units are available throughout the site. Water fountains are unavailable. Visitors may bring a water bottle. Water will also be available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Avoid close contact with other visitors. Trail signs on the new pathways will lead guests through the Village. There is a one-way route that ensures visitors see every cabin. Stay on the one-way path.

The hands-on cabin is temporarily closed, but that doesn’t mean interactive learning has to stop. Add a Time Traveler bag for $25. The bags are filled with all kinds of goodies to help experience the past.
