A visit to Dallas Heritage Village will take you back to a simpler era, when people spent their time caring for their families and their homes. At Dallas Heritage Village, you can actually watch individual demonstrations of homemaker’s activities. On Wednesdays, once a month at 11:00 a.m., the Village offers "Barnyard Buddies Storytime" with a variety tales for preschoolers. The monthly offering of "Family Past Times" will appeal to older children who get to participate in past-time activities directly.

Additional activities are happening for the 4th of July and picnicking is encouraged at Dallas Heritage Village from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Historical re-enactors will be decked out in period costume and visitors can take on the a variety of Victorian challenges and competitions that were prevalent during that era. The Village is sponsoring its Junior Historical Carnival which includes a "Stick Pony Race," and children's crafts. Musical entertainment will round off the day in the pleasant surroundings of Old City Park, dotted with the historic homes and buildings that constitute Dallas Heritage Village.

Dallas Heritage Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. The Village closes for the extreme weather months of January and August and major holidays. While you can guide yourself on a tour through Dallas Heritage Village or with an audio commentary, guided tours of two of the Village's most prominent features, the Millermore and Sullivan homes, are available at 1:30 p.m. every day.
