  • Love to visit here. So relaxing and educational. The general store is fun to browse through.
  • Very nicely done historic Recreation with buildings brought in from other parts of the county. They have several family-friendly events each year including cracker Christmas which is always a lot of fun with everything decorated like turn of the last century.
  • This place is awesome! So many exhibits and information! You really want to visit here, trust me!
  • This is a fun, friendly, educational, historical place to learn and spend time with your family. We will be back to visit.
  • The whole park is a great place for everyone, the guided brochure is a must have for the first time. We walked through the whole park and stopped at the gift shop and the whole trip took about 2 hours. Very neat place to bring the family to see what old Florida was like.
