The Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano recently launched a membership drive to encourage members of the North Texas community to sign up as members or renew their membership at the Farmstead. Heritage Farmstead Museum members receive a year of free admission to the museum and access to variety of members-only events and special benefits.

“Our membership is unique, because our members become part of our Farmstead family. We want to provide a social space for them to get involved and get to know other members. And we count on their financial support, as well,” said Heritage Farmstead Museum Executive Director M’Lou Hyttinen. “Memberships help us sustain our educational programs, enhance our exhibits and protect our historic site for the many generations to come. And let’s not forget the regular care and feeding of our loveable livestock.”

The Heritage Farmstead Museum is located on a four-acre farmstead built in 1891. The farmland contains a 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.

“This is a rare testimony to the agricultural heritage of North Texas and is a priceless landmark linking our community with its past,” added Hyttinen. “70 percent of our funding comes from memberships, donations, and sponsorships.”

Each year approximately 35,000 people including more than 10,000 students and children visit the site. Heritage Farmstead Museum offers school field trips and programs, private house and grounds tours, special events, summer camps, private parties and volunteer opportunities.

The Farmstead is celebrating its members at an annual membership dinner on October 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. featuring food from On the Border, beverages, dancing and live music by Matt Hillyer from Eleven Hundred Springs. The membership dinner event is free, so those interested are encouraged to join or renew their membership before October 10.
