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.

Village is slowly taking shape, but the houses already there are well appointed, and it's fun to learn about the families that lived there.
