This is actually my neighborhood park and it's fabulous! I love to walk along the trails and sit on the St Johns River. The trails are paved so easy to push a stroller or wheelchair (I've done both). The museum is very interesting and I...More

While passing through town we had an hour to spend and went to this quaint little place. It has a few significant artifacts, but it is small. Takes just about 45 min to go through it, and walk down to the river which is beautiful.

I enjoy seeing things from days-gone-by. I can imagine myself back in that era picking up my mail or talking with my friends and townspeople. Quaint, it is a shame there are not more of these sites to visit.

Get there early for parking but there is additional parking on the other side of the park. Beautiful trails with the old homestead on the way to the river. A gorgeous veiw of the river . Highly recommended .

We came here only to find it closed so check ahead to make sure this exhibit is open. We toured the outside and that consisted the original building, a one room school house and a 1870's homestead with several buildings (house, barn, chicken coop, etc)....More

We have been here several times and truly enjoying going back periodically and walking thru the property. This a great place to walk and view the river. There are several buildings which may be toured at different times. Worth a visit.

We stopped in here during a small festival earlier in the year. Definitely brings you back to an earlier time. Our son liked seeing the older set up. It was a small, quick visit, but interesting.
