Heritage Farmstead Museum educational program series in Plano TX aims to keep you ‘Young at Heart’


Heritage Farmstead Museum is a historic farm museum at 1900 West 15th Street in Plano, Texas. The late-Victorian farm-house was built in 1891

Plano’s Heritage Farmstead Museum is often filled with small children on school field trips or young families enjoying the wonders of the four-acre historic site, which is nestled in
the center of the city.  But folks at Heritage Farmstead are targeting a slightly different demographic with the organization’s senior-focused program “Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit.”

“Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit” is a Heritage Farmstead Museum
educational program designed specifically for seniors. Program presentations, conducted on targeted days once per each from 10 a.m. to noon, will feature a variety of topics from vegetable gardening, music, history and much more.

Heritage Farmstead Museum Director of Development Kathy Strobel said “This exciting, popular program allows all of us at the Heritage Farmstead Museum to reach out to another sector of our community to provide educational opportunities, fellowship and fun.”

Upcoming Young at Heart: 55+ Exceeding the Limit programs include:

On September 11, enjoy an old fashioned ice cream social followed by a
concert by acclaimed music group Men of Note. This program will begin at
11:30 a.m. instead of 10 a.m.

Mark your calendar and sign up now for October 9’s program when Don Gates will give a demonstration of a traditional chuck wagon lunch. Samples of his unique, tasty fare will be provided. Hear the history of the chuck wagon and of the cattle drives on Texans past while sitting by an open camp fire.

Please share on your social media today.

Pre-registration for each class is $6 for non-members and $5 for Heritage Farmstead Museum members. Each program is limited to 50 registrants.  Online registration is available at www.heritagefarmstead.org or by calling 972-881-0140.
