Description:

History meets nature at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek Regional Park!...

History meets nature at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek Regional Park! Step back in time as you tour the fully-restored dwellings of some of Osceola County's earliest settlers, furnished to depict lifestyles in the late 19th century. Visit our Seminole Settlement to see how Florida's natives lived off the land. Explore our hiking, biking and paddling trails to get in touch with Florida's nature on the Headwaters of the Everglades.

Visiting Central Florida? Don't miss the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum! Journey through Osceola County's natural history as you crawl through a gopher tortoise burrow and climb into a life-sized eagle's nest. Venture through interactive exhibits that tell the stories of Osceola County's earliest industries including citrus farming, cattle ranching, and tourism. After you learn about Osceola County's past, explore what its present has to offer with information about local restaurants and hotspots, as well as discounted tickets to local attractions.

The village is laid our well with good signage but few shade trees and no access to the homes or buildings. Orange county has a similar village which is free of charge with lots of shade trees and full access to all the homes and other buildings as well as an Indian War fort.We asked about the hiking trail and...

Great place to learn about history of the orange growers. Nice park right next to it where there is a walking trail. Been here twice and only $7 adult and $3 kids.

This place is definitely a work in progress, but it's fascinating to learn about local history and see how folks lived in the past. The place has picnic areas, trails, and biking areas that are free. But if you want to get into the homes and explore the exhibit there is a $7 fee.

Each structure has been lovingly preserved to demonstrate how life was once lived, complete with Partin Family’s Caretaker’s House, Blacksmith’s Shop, Lanier “Cracker House” (an early-American form...

We toured Pioneer Village a few years ago at the old location. It has moved to a large open area north of the county visitor center and museum. It is open daily from 10 AM to 4 PM. Admission is $7 for adults. They are members of the North American Reciprocal Museums, so membership in one of those museums allows... More

Interesting buildings and more to come supposedly. Male staff member "recited" a 3-4 minute intro than it was a self-guided tour. Quiet and scenic, away from the hustle and bustle of Disney.

The new location is more spacious but still need a great deal of work. The staff is not so friendly or may only to certain people. The history is good knowledge for the kids. The market is a good idea that was recently added but they need more and better choices for food. The place is progressing. The parking staff... More

it is the perfect thing to do right after the museum in the osceola county welcome center. We had the whole Park for us alone and enjoyed the walk. Good place for Florida schools fieldtrips. Get the ticket in the museum and you save 2$.
