Heritage Farmstead Museum
Backstory and Context
Hunter Farrell was a
prosperous businessman in Collin County. Unfortunately, his growing business often kept him away from home. As a result, his wife, Mary Alice, eventually took on
full administration of the farmstead (they grew wheat). She maintained supervision of
the farmstead until she and Hunter divorced in 1928 after which their
daughter Ammie shared ownership and assisted Mary Alice on the farmstead; Ammie ran the farm until 1972. As such, the farm is also known as the Ammie Wilson House.
