We recommend a Sarah's Trunk presentation before bringing children to the farmstead. This in-class demonstration answers the question, "What was it like in the daily life of the frontier community?"​​

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.  

To request a presentation for your school or group, or for more information, Please fill out the

​All tours are guided by our knowledegable docents and include the main house, barn, blacksmith shop, smokehouse, and all additional outbuildings on the farmstead.
