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.

This is a fascinating place with lots of insight into the old days. Well laid out with information near all the exhibits. However they could do more to make it more popular I suspect a shortage of funds could be the cause.

This site has Houses, Barns, A Train Depot, Blacksmith Shop and many other interesting Buildings complete with furnishings and information. We spent about an hour and a half ad really enjoyed it. Best of all we saved money by buying our tickets on floridavacationauction.com

A mixture of renovated and replica houses built in a large paddock. Boards throughout the village explaining the history of each building and the families that lived in them.
