    It is connected to the florida botanical gardens, so you can walk right through to this park. What a collection of old houses that you can walk through and check out. They have 2 houses next to the museum that you have to do a tour with a guide to see. They have a sugar cane mill you can use to press the sugar cane to see what its like back in the day. Alot of classic car shows. I sat in a original bonnie and Clyde. Nice! Once in a while have a farmers market there, veterans gatherings, all different sorts of events. You can walk through a old train, and train station. If you don’t care for the traditional museum type, you will enjoy this one!

    Went for the first time today. What a treasure! We walked and explored just the Village today, but will definitely be going back to walk the Botanical Gardens. Next time we’ll bring a picnic lunch. If you want a beautiful place to take your family and learn about Florida’s earlier days, you need to carve out some time to visit here.

    Personally as a mom with a just a family going, I would have loved the place. It is really nice way to see history. With a group, I don’t highly recommend it. Younger kids have a hard time getting into the history, and when you have a big group (we had two groups of 11-14 each) it takes skill to keep them all interested at once. I found that for the little kids, the junior docents spoke too fast and with too big words and thy were lost in the first sentence, so what I did instead is make it a game and we played pretend and pretended we were there in history. This made it fun and they learned something. Also, we were told we would have three activities and we only were given one, which was disappointing.

    Five stars not enough!!! A wonderful display of and pride in the history of the area. We are Ohio snowbirds who discovered the place just this year. We will go again next year to see the vegetable garden – and, I am sure everything else as well.
