History students toured Fort Worth's Log Cabin Village

On Oct. 6, students from Dr. Matthews' Public History class toured Fort Worth's Log Cabin Village. During the tour, the students had the opportunity to see six log houses from the mid-19th century that make up the museum's primary artifacts. They also interacted with the museum's historical interpreters who depicted the lifestyle of people living in Texas' pioneer era.

Texas Wesleyan's course in public history allows history majors to explore the different methods used by historians in the field of public history, including archives, museums and oral history. It acquaints them with non-teaching career options available to those with degrees in history. For more information about this class or the history program at Texas Wesleyan, please visit txwes.edu/history.
