Mission Statement

The mission of the Heritage Farmstead Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret late 19th century Blackland Prairie history while making use of the authentically restored Farrell-Wilson Farmstead, a designated historic site.

Description

The Heritage Farmstead Association works to preserve, teach, and demonstrate the past to more than 30,000 visitors annually. Transformed into a living museum of agricultural history, this 4.5 acre historic farm complex has been awarded designation by the Plano Landmark Association, a State of Texas Historical marker, and a listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The museum has received accreditation from the prestigious American Association of Museums.

Heritage Farmstead Museum relies on volunteers for many of its programs, events, and day to day operations. We have a wonderful team of volunteers who we train in their volunteer positions until they feel comfortable. We have parties, and opportunities to engage with other volunteers and staff.

Come join our team and help preserve history for generations to come!
