The Heritage Farmstead

If you’ve been in Plano for awhile you have probably heard of a local farm we have called the Heritage Farmstead. It’s located in the middle of Plano and a perfect place to take the family or even have a birthday party! Come check out the Heritage Farmstead.

Built in 1891, the Heritage Farmstead is an active farm and house that has been preserved very nicely so you can really experience what life was like back in the day.  It’s located on a 4.5-acre farm complex off of 15th street and serves over 4,000 visitors annually.

The Heritage Farmstead has a house you can walk through and see replicas of what life was like in each room from clothing to dishes and baths. A crowd favorite is the one room school house you can look in and sit at a desk to get a good picture of what school was like back then!

This makes a fun birthday party location as well as a fun family day out.  The farm can be rented out for a private party or even a wedding!
