The special exhibit will open with a private event for members and donors on Friday, September 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Guests will tour the Farrell-Wilson house and will receive a commemorative t-shirt and glass to celebrate the museum’s golden anniversary.
 
May 31, 2023 marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Plano Heritage Association. The Plano Heritage Association, now known as Heritage Farmstead Museum, received the donation of the farmstead’s historic farmhouse and its outbuildings and the ground lease of the acreage they sat on from Hunt Properties in 1973. This exhibit premier is one of the many activities planned in a year-long recognition of this milestone in the museum's history.
 
“We are delighted to be celebrating our golden anniversary,” said Heritage Farmstead Museum Executive Director M’Lou Hyttinen. ““The farmstead is a rare testimony to the agricultural heritage of North Texas and is a priceless landmark linking our community with its past.”
 
Heritage Farmstead Museum offers a variety of membership levels that feature assorted member benefits while allowing members to become part of a group of dedicated individuals helping to preserve Collin County’s only surviving farmstead while making sure the stories of our region’s past are never lost or forgotten.
 
“Our membership is unique, because our members become part of our farmstead family,” added Hyttinen. “Memberships help us sustain our educational programs, enhance our exhibits and protect our historic site for the many generations to come.”
 
The Heritage Farmstead Museum is located on a four-acre farmstead built in 1891. The farmland contains an iconic, historic house, 15 original outbuildings and barns, a vast collection of agricultural implements and objects, a vegetable garden, a beautiful creek and nature area and livestock.
 
The Ammie Wilson exhibit will be on display through September 2024.
 
Heritage Farmstead Museum is located at 1900 West 15th Street in Plano. General admission is $5 per person.  Docent-guided house tours are $10 per person (including general admission), and free for children four and under and museum members.  Grounds are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for self-guided tours.
