Next time you’re looking for a fly-in Texas adventure, consider the Picket House Restaurant and Heritage Village Museum in Woodville. A popular destination for aviators, the restaurant serves boarding-house style, all-you-can-eat fried chicken, chicken & dumplings, country vegetables, cobbler, biscuits and cornbread with all the trimmings.
The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 am – 3 pm, Saturday and Sunday 9 am – 5 pm (except holidays), and guided tours available with advanced notice.
Call ahead to (409) 283-3371 before flying into nearby Tyler County Airport 09R and they will pick you up upon arrival.
