Pioneer Days-Dade City

In case you've never been, there's a little gem of a museum in Dade City called the Pioneer Florida Museum and Village. Pioneer Florida is a collection of historical buildings and items of the Florida pioneer on display throughout 16 beautiful acres just north of Dade City on Highway 301. There's a main building housing many artifacts from all aspects of pioneer life such as farming, spinning, blacksmithing and food preparation. There's even a schoolhouse and train depot on the property. This weekend would be a great time to visit because it's the museum's annual Pioneer Days Festival (August 31 and Sept. 1). One will find civil war reenactments, children's activities, and craft demonstrations throughout both Saturday and Sunday. Pioneer Days occurs every Labor Day weekend.
