Texas Heritage Institute at Enchanted Springs Ranch
Your students will not only learn about the Old West and Texas History, they’ll see it and touch it. This is truly a unique experience that emphasizes the thrills and hardship of early Texas life. It’s one thing to sing home on the range, it’s another to see buffalo roam and deer and antelope play. Add a photo opportunity with one of our horses or Woodrow, our longhorn steer, a ride through our Wild Animal Park, and fun in our kids’ miniature town and playground. You’ll see why most schools come back year after year.
Field Trips last approximately 2 ½ hours.

★ Greeting by Enchanted Springs Ranch Staff.
