The Heritage Farmstead Museum was built in 1891 in the Blackland Prairie by Hunter Farrell for his wife, Mary Alice, and daughter, Ammie. Their home was a pretentious yet practical farmhouse with elaborate jig-saw trim and generous wrap-around porches. This home was used by Mary Alice and then Ammie until 1972 when the Plano Heritage Museum was formed to preserve the home and grounds.
The Farmstead has several events throughout the year and is available for rental. The educational opportunities for the facility are numerous and for all ages.
