We’ll Bring the Past to Your Present

This interactive exhibit can travel to your school or group! Prepare your students for their visit to the Pound House with a history-filled trunk of touch-and-see artifacts. Sarah's Trunk traces Joseph & Sarah Pound's journey to Texas and their subsequent family life in Dripping Springs in the mid-1800s & early 1900's. Sarah’s Trunk is specially designed to connect students with early pioneer living in Dripping Springs using real artifacts. This in-class demonstration answers the question, "What was it like in the daily life of the frontier community?"



From Your House to The Pound House

Enhance and extend your homeschool curriculum and inspire your children with an honest-to-goodness chance to step back in time — with a visit to The Farmstead to learn about Dripping Springs as you relive it. We offer a unique classroom environment reminiscent of Laura Ingals Wilder.
