If modern living is getting you, take a trip back in time at the George Ranch Historical Park in Richmond.

"Our mission is to teach students about Texas history really in about a 100-year timeframe from the 1830s to the 1930s," says site director Adrienne Barker.

The story is told through four generations of a real Texas family by interpreters who interact with visitors.

"They’re costumed to the timeframe, they’re at homes or in settings to what would have been in that timeframe, to really give people an experience about what it might have been like to live during that time," Barker explains.
