My wife and I arrived one weekday afternoon to check this place out. Really a nice park with a playground, basketball and tennis courts as well as a number of historic buildings and exhibits. Guess I did not know much about life in the late 1800's and early 1900's in Florida. I learned a lot about the Seminole Indians and... More

Definitely visit this place. It was a great day to be outside and walk around. Loved the time out here in some of historic Florida.

We visited this park for a family picnic. With close and extended family attending, we had about 25 people there that ranged in ages from 3 years old to 75 years old. The park was a beautiful setting with its large oak trees draped with spanish moss that provided plenty of shade from the Florida sun. The kids really enjoyed... More

Very well kept park, the best part was to be able to walk inside all the original pioneer houses and the little fort. They have a small playground with bathrooms and all, it's a nice place for all ages and it's free!

We were well satisfied with the historic homes, furnishings and artifacts in the museum. Homage is attributed to the industrious men and women of the era in the carefully curated homes. Docents eagerly shared their knowledge and welcomed comments. We learned a good deal about the challenges and accomplishments of Floridians circa 1870. The grounds are well maintained. Plenty of...

This is near Titsuville Fl and it is really a learning experience. We went with friends and really enjoyed the place. This would be a great place to bring the whole family. So much to see and learn here.

We loaded the kids in the car and headed to what we hoped to be a wonderful Christmas outing at Fort Christmas. A big sign on Highway 50 pointed the way to the Fort with a big sign that said "Event". It took us over 30 minutes to travel the 1.8 miles from the highway to the event only to... More

Event opened at 10am, by 10:30 the parking was full and they were turning away cars. I have no idea if the festival was any good or not since we were among the hundreds turned away. I just know that driving 50 miles only to get turned away at the gate left me with a VERY negative impression. I'll be... More

As a bit of a change from theme parks and Orlando's other fast paced attractions we took a drive out to this place. Not too far away but like another world. The setting is gorgeous, lush, green, leafy and very well kept. We wandered around the old homes, very interesting and full of old furnishings and artefacts. The fort was... More
