Nash Farm

One of the best ways to learn about Grapevine and its heritage is by visiting Nash Farm. Located at 626 Ball St. in the heart of Grapevine, this 5.2-acre historical landmark, which centers around the house barn and family cemetery Thomas Nash built in 1869, brings history to life. Purchased by Nash in 1859, today the farm celebrates life as it was on the Texas prairie. Nash Farm offers many educational programs throughout the year but is also open almost year-round for drop-in visits and tours. Hours: Labor Day through Memorial Day Daily - 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day Monday - Friday - 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday - Sunday - 9 a.m. - 5 p.m
