Sara was our guide and it amazed me how she remembered so much information. It was all very interesting for anyone! The whole family really soaked up the history! It's free but they accept donations. Best part of the week out here. Wouldn't miss it. Thanks to Sara our knowledgeable guide! :)

We were lucky enough to have Sara as our docent. She has written a very thorough history of the Raney family, entitled Raney Days, so our tour was extremely informative. The tour was a particular delight for us as we were staying in the Raney Cottage, located immediately behind the Museum property.

I live fairly close to Apalachicola and have never done the historical sites, so one weekend my husband and I played tourist, and I'm so glad we did! I knew Apalachicola was a historical town, but the history of the homes here is amazing. We toured the Raney house and Ms Sara was our tour guide! She was FABULOUS! She... More

Our docent has written a book on this family and house. Gives a good glimpse into the times and history. Free (donation jar at entrance). Worth 30 mins.

So glad we toured this old, historical home. The docent gave us an in depth description of the owners and the furnishings. Learned about early Florida history and the various Indian tribes, etc. The home is air-conditioned which makes it very comfortable to walk around. Worth seeing.

If you love historical sites this is definitely one to visit. I would love to go back again this year with my in... More

The Raney House has volumes of history. From the history of the area, to the owner of the house (David Greenway Raney) and his life in Apalachicola gives a step back in time to the 1800’s. The house is furnished with period pieces, some owned by the Raney family, great maps and other interesting items. The lady we had as... More

If you like history and old houses, it is very pleasant to visit. Our guide was very knowledgable about the Raney family and the period that they lived in.
