In 1950, the Tarrant County Historical Society members and Pioneer Texas Heritage Committee built the Village. These groups saw that log structures which were common in Texas since 1800s were rapidly disappearing from Texas’ landscape. Another part of Texas’ history was being lost. To preserve the history and culture of log cabins, they established a Village.
Six log homes erected as far back to the mid 1800s were selected from the North Texas region, and moved to their current location. In the 1950s and 1960s, they were restored. The Village was officially opened to the public in 1966. The Foster Cabin, an 1850s plantation loghouse and a stunning Foster Cabin were built in 1974. In 2003, the 1870s Marine School was completed. The Village was given the Reynolds Smokehouse in 2005. It was relocated from Azle.
These historic structures offer a glimpse into life at the frontier of North Texas during the nineteenth century. Each log house represents different aspects of pioneer life. A water-powered gristmill is available, as well as a one-room schoolhouse. There is a blacksmith shop, an herb garden area, and many log homes. Fort Worth has a group of volunteers and staff that can help you understand the lives of the people who settled this area in the mid- to late 1800s.
Log Cabin Village also manages Van Zandt Cottage, a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Van Zandt Cottage Friends, Inc. and the City of Fort Worth are currently restoring the Cottage.
