Come and discover what life was like at the turn of the century in the Florida "piney woods." The cracker homestead is a replica of a 19th century pioneer settlement. This collection of buildings represents a small "Cracker'' settlement dating to the 1890s. A typical homestead of the time would have included a cabin and outbuildings such as a barn, pantry, smokehouse, and outhouse. Schoolhouses, churches, and blacksmith shops would have been found in settlements that homesteaders visited to attend social gatherings and barter for supplies. During the tour, these buildings will be open and unlocked and on most tours the blacksmith's forge will be fired up. Meet at the Cracker Village across from the Silver River museum.
