Immerse yourself for a day in the early days of Texas with life-size recreations of a prairie village, a cotton planter's farm, a German emigrant's farm, a Texian farm, and a Tonkawa Indian encampment. The Tonkawa Indian encampment is located on the site of an actual campsite from centuries ago. There is also a creek with native trees and wildlife, and pens at each site to view animals up close.
