This Tiny, Isolated Texas Village Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind
Museums are such neat places. They allow us to step back 100, 1000, or sometimes even millions of years to learn more about a certain aspect of life in that time period. What if I told you there’s an entire village in Texas that’s essentially a living museum? Heritage Village-Museum in Woodville is a near-exact replica of a late 19th/early 20th century East Texas town, with some of the buildings having actually been used in that era and since been restored. It’s a truly surreal experience to be surrounded by such history (and you get a delicious meal at the Pickett House out of it, so go even if only for that).
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The address is 157 Private Road 6000, Woodville, TX 75979.
