Heritage Park Museum of East Texas

Heritage Park Museum 

Located in Van Zandt County, the Heritage Park is the focal point of Edgewood in North East Texas.  Covering three city blocks, the site is home to numerous community celebrations.  It is the destination of tourists in search of an historical attraction void of the hustle and bustle associated with the metropolitan areas.  

The park is open on Thursday through Saturday from 9am until 12pm. Admission is $5 per person. If you have a group you would like to take on a tour, please contact the office at 903-896-1940 with the date and time you would like to schedule.

Founded in 1976, the park is a Bi-Centennial project that continues to grow yearly.  This outdoor museum encompasses 20 authentically restored and furnished structures representing rural life in East Texas from the 1800's to the 1920's.

The second Saturday in November is our one-day celebration in the  Heritage Park  Museum.  It is the major fundraising effort in the Society's quest to maintain this architectural exhibit of 20 restored and furnished structures reminiscent of rural Van Zandt County around 1900. Join us for a stroll through history with activities for all ages and celebrate 175 years of Texas history.
