The Heritage Farmstead Museum is all that is left of a 365 acre farm.  The original wheat farm belonged to Hunter Farrell, his wife Mary Alice and later his daughter Ammie.   Ammie died in 1972 and an Association was created to preserve the home and 4.5 acres.  The association’s goal is to  teach and demonstrate the past.

While we were there to enjoy the museum we were also on a treasure hunt for letterboxes.  The series of 26 boxes entitled “A Day at the Heritage Farms Museum” gave us a nice tour of the farm while hunting for treasures.

On the drive up we detoured over to the Waxahachie high school to see a “muffler man” painted as the school mascot.  If you aren’t familiar with “muffler men” go here:    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muffler_Men
