  • The Florida Agricultural Museum offers a glimpse into real Florida life from the 1800s. The museum is a 460-acre living history exhibit that includes a 5-building citrus complex, a 5,000-square-foot dairy barn, an 1880s farmstead with all of its outbuildings, a turn-of-the-century country store, the archeological remains of a British colonial period sawmill, and an exhibit that tells the story of Africans and African Americans in Florida's cattle industry.

    Each of the buildings were donated to the museum and painstakingly moved and rebuilt at the Agricultural Museum staff and volunteers. The Florida Cracker homestead consists of a shotgun home, chicken coop, barn, smoker, and a carefully-rebuilt hand-crafted fence that includes hundreds of small pickets and unique finials for each gate.

    The Museum also maintains herds of heritage livestock, including Florida Cracker Horses and Cattle.Visitors can walk through actual Cracker homes transported from Florida frontiers and plantations, pick vegetables, ride horses, and see Cracker cows descended from the original Spanish free-range herds.
