Frontier Village Visit – January 17, 2016
The Village, which has been designated Grayson County’s official museum, has been described as one of the county’s “Best Kept Secrets.”
When walking into the Frontier Village the boys started off in the Visitor’s Center. There they found a museum brimming with artifacts (gifts from people throughout Grayson County) from the days long ago.
Next they took a stroll through the past outside. A time capsule of local history, Frontier Village consists of 11 historic homes including the county’s oldest school, a country store, old church, newspaper office, a museum, and research center. There are collections of mule-drawn farm implements and early hand tools; even a portable jail that housed county prisoners working on roads before 1920.
