BOONVILLE HERITAGE PARK
Occupying 11.29 acres, the park is home to the Turner-Peters log house, an original 1856 structure furnished with 19th century pieces that were typical to the Texas frontier.
NATURAL AND CULTURAL EXHIBITS
The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History has served the Brazos Valley in many ways since its founding in 1961. There is no other museum within a 100 mile radius of Bryan and College Station which focuses on natural and cultural history and encourages human interaction with nature.
