Local Museums

I love finding out the history of where I live, and last weekend I came across Knapp Heritage Park in Arlington, Texas. It's amazing to me that families were raised in just two rooms often in a dog trot cabin (the animals slept in the open area between the two rooms). There are several structures which gives the visitor a glimpse into pioneer life. The heritage center site was donated by the grandchildren of James and Mildred Knapp. James Knapp was a prominent attorney and land developer.

Ropes across the bed frame were tightened - "Good night, sleep tight"

I admit I've never heard of this park. I'll have to check it out sometime. Indeed I am glad places are preserved so folks can see and learn hands-on
