It cost 2 dollars to see the house but well worth it. The lady that does the tour is very knowledgeable about the Raineys and local history. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to see the house.

We stumbled into the Raney house while on the Apalachicola Historic homes tour, and were blessed to be there when there were 2 docents available!! While there is not much to this, it is quaint, warm, and a throw back to a century gone by....More

A wonderful hour spent here. Historic home and the family history is interesting. There is no admission charge, but a donation box is available, and in my mind well worth a donation! Another "don't miss" in this town.

Docent Judy was wonderful and gave us so much information during our tour. My group highly recommends you stop in to see for yourself.

Compared to the Orman House this museum wasn't much but it was free so worth a visit. Not much in the way of furnishings.

We enjoyed hearing how this family interacted with other local families and how the unfortunately fell on hard times. Our guide was an interesting person to talk with.
