Outdoor Spaces


BK40SmallThe Back 40

The Back 40 offers a unique, hands-on learning experience in a historical Texas setting. The Back 40 is the museum's outdoor living history area and is home to a one-room schoolhouse, a log house, a barn, an army fort barracks, and an adobe house—all typical of Texas in the 1800s. Each building serves as an ideal setting for a Texas history lesson. Tour groups will experience firsthand the hardships and joys the early Texans experienced and will have fun learning in the process.
