Sara, who has written a book about the Raneys is a fount of information about: the home, the health of the populace during the time the Raneys lived in their home, the culture of the local community, the civil war as it affected Apalachicola and the local restaurants. We enjoyed our tour through the home and were interested in the... More

We were pleasantly surprised to walk in from our little stroll around Apalachicola and be immediately welcomed and taken on a tour of this lovely historic home. Definitely worth a visit, especially for anyone interested in "hands-on" kind of history. Sara is an excellent story teller.

It was an easy walk from the town centre and we were welcomed by a lady who gave us our tour. The tour was very informative giving the history of the house and the family whilst we walked through the house. It was an enjoyable and memorable visit.

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! I loved the personal touches throughout the home, especially the letters and photographs.... More

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.
