Austin: Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farm

Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms demonstrates the rigors and joys of 19th century farm life. A walking tour includes village square stores, homes and three farms where reenactors tend crops, work animals and perform chores. The James Bell home and detached kitchen embodies a prosperous cotton grower’s life. The Frederick Jourdan cabin and outbuildings replicate an 1870s homestead. The Fredric Kreuger Farm reflects the simple life of 1860s German immigrants. Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms also features a Tonkawa Indian campsite.
