A very nice exhibit of old Florida. The surrounding area is full of Florida history. The Location is very easy get to and it is a beautiful country location. This area/exhibit would be a great field trip for educators to consider.

Happened upon this place while out on a backroad and stopped to walk through all the buildings. It was a beautiful day and the whole site was very interesting. A bonus was the little cabins and building were decorated for Christmas too.
