Today, each of the historical structures, furnished with authentic artifacts, provides a vivid look at life in the nineteenth century North Texas frontier. Each log house displays different aspects of pioneer life. The exhibits include a water-powered gristmill, a one-room schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, an herb garden, and several log home settings. Historical interpreters, who are City of Fort Worth staff and volunteers, depict the lifestyle of the pioneers who settled in the area in the mid to late 1800s. Throughout the Village, interpreters bring the 19th century to life. The Village collections consist of authentic artifacts and reproductions from the Texas time period.
