Nash Farm, circa 1859, is the oldest operating farmstead in Tarrant County. Through interpretive programs, events and exhibits, Nash Farm educates the community about the heritage and importance of the Grapevine Prairie and Grapevine’s pivotal role in the development of North Texas. The farmstead consists of the original house, the original barn and a family cemetery. Thomas Jefferson Nash purchased 110 acres of farmland in Grapevine in 1859. Nash family originally consisted of Thomas, wife Elizabeth, their six children and Thomas’s brother William. Their first home, a log cabin, was replaced by the current two-story structure around 1880. A barn was added nearby in 1905. Nash Farm was used to raise cash crops such as corn, wheat and cotton in addition the usual subsistence crops. Farm livestock included cattle, hogs, sheep,horses, oxen, mules and chicken.
