Thomas J. and Elizabeth Nash Farm
The Thomas J. and Elizabeth Nash Farm holds significance as one of the last surviving farmsteads between Forth Worth and Dallas. Here, visitors will learn about Grapevine's farming history through exhibits, interpretive programs, and touchable displays. The site features the original c.1869 farmhouse, a barn built in 1905, outbuildings, a cemetery, and an active crop field. Visitors can take self and guided tours and participate in a variety of activities the farm offers. The farm was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.
Backstory and Context
Descendants owned the farm until 1927. It was privately owned until the Grapevine Heritage Foundation and the City of Grapevine bought it in 1999. The site was then restored to its c.1907 appearance.
