Too bad tripdavisor has an average rating, then very good. I would say this was good-in between average and very good. If you are a history buff and need a break from beaches and theme parks, this is a lovely way to spend the better part of a day. It is free which is very nice! Nice walk (would be hard for handicapped). The homes are from different settlers from Florida, some are reproductions like the schoolhouse. Only a couple of homes were open with a personal tour which were scheduled. Many were not open to walk around in. There really is no place to get a bit to eat but picnic tables so bring your own snacks. You can also walk through the botanical gardens which were disappointing.
