My wife and I found this and visited it this weekend.

It is located in Plano, Texas just north of Dallas. $3.50/adult...cheaper for kids. It is a guided tour of a 1891 farmstead. Pretty informative, and they have attempted to preserve the authenticity....

It made for a nice Sunday outing...

If you like that then you need to see Living History Farms in Des Moines, IA. Lots of authetic farm and small town stuff.

And in the tourist mecca that is North Dakota, try the Dakota Hawk Museum, just outside Mylo, ND. Dale Hawk established a heck of a museum at his farm, it now houses the entire town of Nanson, ND, an early church moved in from Balta, an old law library, a one-room schoolhouse, Dale's house, and several large buildings full of some extremely rare pieces of farm equipment, along with some not so rare. In June of each year they have a big "doings". Admission is $3 I believe. While you're in the area be sure to visit the Geographical center of the North American continent in Rugby, about 30 miles WSW, and take a drive up to the International Peace Gardens between Dunseith, ND and Boissevain, Man.

Oh, by the way, that's my old stompin' grounds...
