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.

We do and it was called the Maple Leaf. It's a Civil War era paddle boat in the St. Johns river. This museum has hundreds of artifacts from the wreck and the guy that actually found the thing gives talks there every now and then....More

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 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.
