While I was visiting Apalachicola, Florida on Saturday 23rd August 2014, I saw a large white Greek revival style home right on corner of Market Street and Avenue F. I said to myself I would like to see the insides of that house. The sign said open. I went inside and enjoyed a trip back into time. The entire house... More

We just spent the weekend visiting Apalachicola and included the historical homes in our activities. We missed The Raney House on Saturday but decided to stay long enough to see it on Sunday. So happy we didn't miss it. We aren't much for guided tours since we usually read on our interests prior to our trips but we would have... More

Thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of the Raney House and Apalachicola. The docent, "Ms. Sara" knew her subject matter very well and painted the picture that allowed us to visualize "life" as it occurred for the families and home - almost as though we were there!

We were greeted by a sweet little lady named Sara who took her time to explain the history of the family and the house. Sara was very knowledgeable and provided us with insight to the home and the families that had lived there. A must see while in Apalachicola.

Visited with my husband and sister. The docent (Sara) seemed to genuinely love her subject and made history come alive for us. She was amazingly detailed and never boring. It was great to see the old furnishings, photos and clothes from days gone by and "wonder if". A very pleasant hour without a minute wasted!

Interesting visit to a classic home. The docent was excellent and very knowledgable. Learned a lot of local history and left with a much better understanding of the area.

Stumbled upon this as it was raining and we saw it was free so walked inside. The lady working there was so informative and nice. Showed us the whole house and allowed us to walk around alone as well. Definitely a good way to spend 45 minutes. Would definitely encourage others to go!

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a nice lady who was friendly and informative. I loved talking to her about the history of the house and the area. She seemed genuinely glad to show us the house.
