Heritage Village is a living museum of pioneer history, with a main street that is right out of the mid 1800's to early 1900's.

Walk through an old-time blacksmith shop. Check out a railroad depot. Visit a livery stable or any one of the community's log cabins. Or just stroll through the East Texas forest. See demonstrations of the old ways from people who have either studied the art or lived it.

Heritage Village is an outstanding insight into what pioneer life in East Texas was like. Enjoy our website and come visit us soon!
