In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Rockwall was primarily a cotton farming area. The Blackland Prairie Grassland area of the Historic Park is a preservation project of native grass and wildflowers and serves as the Tenant Cabin site. This authentically furnished cabin was originally a part of the Pullen farmstead. This and others like it were used by tenant farmers who lived and worked on cotton farms across Rockwall County.

They were also sometimes used as “weaning cabins” when young family members moved out of the main farm house and started out on their own.
