Let’s fly backward through time! We begin our day out with a visit to the Museum at Love Field. This landmark began life as a grass strip during World War I and in 1917 was named by the Army for a flying officer in the fledgling US Signal Corps Aviation School. Lt. Moss Lee Love was killed flying a Wright Brothers (yes, THOSE Wright brothers) 1912 Model C bi-wing aircraft. Love Field became our primary air transport for 57 years before DFW Airport began operation. Just 4 days after our tour at today’s Love Field it will celebrate its 99th year of serving Texas as a doorway to the world. We will see the many and varied exhibits that chronicle its history. Admission is $10 for Adults $8 for 65+
We will have lunch at an interesting restaurant on our own.
After lunch we will step back in time to the 1880’s and stroll through the Dallas Heritage Village with its 21 historic structures including a Greek Revival plantation house built around 1860. The village includes a general store, hotel, saloon, doctor’s office, farmstead, shotgun house etc. It represents the way our grandparents lived in the past. It is the oldest park in Dallas, established in 1876. Admission is $9 for Adults $7 for 65+
