Before Your Tour

From invoices to group sizes, this section has your answers!


Using the Schoolhouse

The Schoolhouse is a historic building and we want you to help us preserve it for another 100 years! Check out some important instructions about the use of the School before you arrive to help us be good stewards of the structure:

As a reminder, you will need to provide your own teacher for the school activities. A guide of suggested activities/curriculum can be downloaded here:


Invoice for Field Trip

Need an invoice? Use our invoice generator at if you need documentation for your school or district. Simply follow the link, click Make a Copy, and fill in your information.


Pricing and Payment

Your tour balance is due on the day of your tour. Please do not pay in advance as refunds cannot be issued. Students are $6.00 each ($90 minimum), and you get one chaperone free for every 10 students. Additional chaperones are $6.00 each if staying for the tour, and $5 each if only arriving for the tour.


We accept credit cards, cash, and checks (payable to City of Fort Worth--LCV). Make sure checks are only for the amount due; we have no way of giving change for incorrect check amounts.


Tour Activities and Weather

The tour activities at Log Cabin Village will take place outdoors (rain or shine) and in non-climate-controlled structures. Please encourage students to dress accordingly. 


We have water fountains on-site, but you may wish to encourage students to bring bottles of water, especially on those hot Texas days!

Need to cancel or reschedule? Use the cancel button on your confirmation email or call us at 817-392-5881.

Tips for timing, parking,  chaperones, and group sizes!

Tour Arrival Times

Your tour begins at 9:30 a.m; your afternoon Frontier 101 tour begins anytime your group is ready after 11:30 a.m. Please be in and out of the School at your allotted time.



Buses should park along Log Cabin Village Lane and not in the parking lot. Please ask your bus drivers to refrain from leaving the buses idling. The sound of the engine makes it difficult to hear our historical interpreters.


Hide, Lock, Take

Please remind chaperones to take or hide personal belongings left in their vehicles in the parking lot.


Group Sizes

To have the best and safest experience possible, please break your group into pods of approximately 12 people (students, teachers, and adult chaperones) during the Frontier 101 portion of your field trip. Each pod should have at least one chaperone. Please have them stay in these small pods for the entirety of your tour. A group size guide is below:

15-20 people: 2 pods

21-30 people: 3 pods

*No more than 3 pods per field trip group, please!

Visiting the Interpreters

During the Frontier 101 portion of your field trip, you will see 4-6 historical interpreters throughout the Village. We can't guarantee that you will see a historical interpreter at every cabin, but our interpreters can answer questions about any building at the Village. Cabins that do not have an interpreter will have explanatory text panels and a Find that Artifact activity station for you and your students to use at that stop. 

Our interpreters are human and do take lunch breaks! Only two interpreters eat lunch at a time, so there are always multiple interpreters outside to talk to your students.  


Small Groups=Big Fun

Only one pod per cabin during your visit, please. This will make it easier for students to engage with our interpreters and keep everyone safe! 


Walking Feet

We ask that students walk rather than run, and stay on the sidewalks. Students should not be left or allowed to roam unattended.


Lunch Time

Help us protect the Village from hungry critters! Enjoy your snacks and picnic lunches outside the Village grounds in Bobo Woods, the beautiful park adjacent to our parking lot. If you need to take a snack break, you can go to the park and then come back to the Village for more field trip fun.
