This story is part of Big Wonder–our series that explores uniquely larger-than-life stories in Texas.

Sprawling across 4 acres, the Heritage Farmstead Museum features 13 original structures and over 10,000 historical objects. Visitors can escape the scorching heat of Texas summer by stepping inside historically authentic farmhouses, following in the footsteps of settler families as they feed chickens, goats, and a donkey named Poncho.
