The Donald Schoolhouse
A 1900 school building, the Donald Schoolhouse offers a lesson on education as it developed on the Grape Vine Prairie – beginning in a log cabin and growing into today’s modern school district. Originally a Home Economics and Agriculture building for the Donald School was situated on Denton Creek. It teaches us about education on the Grape Vine Prairie.
The Keeling House Museum
This 1888 historic home chronicles how Grapevine developed from a pioneer settlement into a world-class city and visitor destination. Inside the museum you will see nostalgic items from Grapevine's police and fire departments, plus more sentimental artifacts from the city of Grapevine. There is also a collection of Mayor William D. Tate’s personal items. Inside The Keeling House Museum, guests will discover a working 1881 Chandler and Price Press (the Grapevine LetterPress Lab).
