A nice home museum to visit.

Had a nice time re-living a bit of old Florida history. The docent gave us many insights that we would never had know without her.

We've been to Apalachicola a few times and never stopped here. The guide was wonderful and we learned how important the city was in the cotton trade. I highly recommend this visit while in Apalachicola

It's one thing to wander through a house and look at the furnishings and wall hangings; it's quite another to learn the significance of what you see. For that you want the well-informed and personable tour guides of the Raney House Museum to take you through the rooms. You'll be party to some old gossip, a bit of family sorrow,... More

We stopped in the Raney house on a whim. What a delightful time. We learned so much and the sweet docent who guided our tour was precious and a treasury of knowledge.

From the moment you enter and receive your warm southern greeting from Linda, you'll step back in time and learn what life was before the turn of the century. Stay awhile and visit with Ms. Linda and I guarantee you learn more about Apalachicola then anywhere else.

This is a beautifully preserved antebellum home that has been furnished to recreate its original appearance. Civil War buffs will love the fact that one of the original residents served on the CSS Tennessee during the Battle of Mobile Bay.

The Raney House was built by my gr-gr-gr-grandfather, David Greenway Raney, who came to Florida from Virginia and became a cotton broker. I recently visited and was pleased to see that the interior has been well-maintained and has been carefully curated, with period furniture and rugs similar to the originals. The docents are well-trained, replete with knowledge of both the... More
