We decided to visit the museum today it shows the history here in Centeal Florida especially the west coast. There was a lot of orange farming, lumber, turpentine, Native American, and war history in this part of Florida. All these tools, tractors, and buildings were donated to the museum and were really used by the pioneers.

Here is a link to their website if you feel like reading a little more about the history http://www.pioneerfloridamuseum.org

The entrance



Old fire truck


This is where I was born and raised two houses down from the church and the 3rd house in the community


Cypress logs that's a lot of lumber


You mean that flag does have history behind it


Apparently you put a dog on this and they churn butter by walking on it


Old John Deere

Thanks for the pics. Have to study on the alcohol burning fan. Wonder if it works like a Sterling engine?

That was a great picture of a really old flag. I wonder if it predates the stars arranged in a circle? I bet it does.
