The Pioneer Florida Museum is just about 6 miles away from Fisherman’s Cove 55+ community. In other words, it only takes about a 15 minute drive for a quick visit. The Pioneer Florida Museum hopes to show that the men and women who were here before us, struggled, sometimes won and sometimes lost their battles with nature. In essence, they were people much like us.

Museum History

In 1961, a prominent citizen of San Antonio, Florida, offered a variety of old farm equipment to the Pasco County Fair Association. The Association accepted 37 vehicles and tools of yesteryear. This gift provided the incentive for forming the Pioneer Florida Museum Association with 87 Charter Members. The main Museum is housed in a 50′ by 100′ steel building, which features a wide rustic front porch. Also on the grounds stands the restored Overstreet House, a one-room school house from Lacoochee, a church from Enterprise, the Trilby depot, and a train engine. The 16 beautiful wooded acres were a gift from a Museum Association Charter Member. The Association has established a Museum that recalls the basic, simple values of our forebears, asserts the dignity of labor, and emphasizes the value of craftsmanship.

Gift Shop

The Pioneer Florida Museum Gift Shop is open Tuesday thru Saturday during regular museum hours. Visitors are welcomed by an exciting variety of old-fashioned children’s toys, commemorative souvenirs such as coffee mugs, bonnets, as well as novelty candies, Cane Syrup, and a collection of unique Florida inspired books.
