The Farmers Branch Historical Park proudly presents:

Encounters from the Past

Visit the Farmers Branch Keenan Cemetery to meet many of the deceased citizens of North Texas who have helped to shape Farmers Branch into the community it is today. This lamp-lit tour will feature many new stories this year (and some old favorites). You and your family will have a chance to meet gunslingers and family men, reformers and farmers, and everyone else too as costumed actors take on the roles of these prominent citizens during an evening of storytelling, history, and family fun. Crafts and information will also be available. Tours depart every 15 minutes starting at 7 PM and ending at 9 PM. For more information contact the Historical Park at or 972.406.0184.
