Founded in 1961, the Pioneer Florida Museum is a 20 acre outdoor museum dedicated to preserving the history of pioneer life in Florida during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It features 10 buildings, 8 of which have historic significance, that provide visitors with a sense of what life was like for the people who lived in what was then a frontier. One of the buildings, the Lacoochee School, was built in the 1930s. Another building, the Overstreet House, was built around the 1860s. The museum also features the Trilby Depot (from the town of Trilby) and a 1913 steam engine. Throughout the year, the museum offers several events, including the Pioneer Florida Day, the Black Tie and Blue Jeans Dinner Dance, and the Farm Fest and Quilt Show.
