    Buildings from Outlying Districts

    Windmill at Old City Park

    Not all of the buildings in the Old City Park are actually from Dallas proper.

    For instance:

    The 1847 Miller Log Cabin is from Oak Cliff

    This tip is still under construction as I've got so many photos from recent trips that I haven't had a time to post and link them all yet.

    Old City Park

    Old City Park is set on 13 acres of wooded landscape and has been set up like a village to display Victorian era homes and businesses. There are over 30 historic & reconstructed structures such as a doctors and dentist office, print shop, bank, law office, farmhouse, general store, hotel and various other homes and buildings. The setting is quite a contrast to the back drop of the city skyline. It is quite a unique museum depicting life as it was in the years between 1840 and 1910.

    Renner School
    This building was built in the community of Renner which is now part of North Texas. Built in 1888 it was a school until 1919. This style was typical of the schools, meeting houses and Masonic lodges which were built across the South during the 19th century.

    Open year round Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m. Guided tours are 1 hour in length.

    This general store served the small community of Snow Hill, near McKinney in Texas. It was built by D.B. McCall in 1904. Today the building is the museum's gift shop.

    All sorts of goodies are in this little store.
