The Village, which has been designated Grayson
County’s official museum, has been described as one of the county’s
“Best Kept Secrets.” The dedicated volunteers are working hard to change that from
being a secret to being “the place” to take visitors or for locals to
get a good dose of Grayson County Heritage.
Throughout the year, the village has family-friendly events Be sure to watch our Events Page to see what fun we have in store for you.
When visiting the Frontier Village the best place to start is at the Visitor's Center. There you find a museum brimming with artifacts (gifts from people throughout Grayson County) from the days long ago. There are books for sale and there is an abundance of research material.
Then take a stroll through the past. 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.
Don't forget that we are also available for school/home school field trips and family outings. Our Community Room is available for rent and used for meetings, weddings and other events. There is a $50 charge for use of the community room or other facilities that are available to rent. They must be scheduled in advance.
Grayson County Frontier Village is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving a replica of a pioneer village and a museum filled with artifacts and historical information for the public to enjoy. We do this through the generous (tax-deductible) donations of supporters like you!
