Cracker Trail Museum started in 1967 by the Peace River Valley Historical Society, with the procurement of a $20,000 grant from the Florida Game & Fresh Water Fish Commission and the U.S. Soil Conservation Service. Originally known as "Pioneer Park Museum", it serves the public interest of the Peace River Valley by providing a means for the collection, preservation and interpretation of collections of significant historic objects from the area. Additionally, the museum's primary obligation was to guarantee adequate preservation of the collections and effective use of their contents. Donations range from Pioineer household goods, farming implements, historical documents, Indian history and implements. Cracker Trail Museum is part of Pioneer Park's historic Pioneer Village which includes the C.A. Bryant Blacksmith Shop, a 1914 Baldwin Locomotive Engine, and the Hart Cabin.

  • We visit small local museums in small towns all over the country. This one is wonderful and $2.14 to get in. I had to ask because it was on the sign outside. It's the tax.  more »
  • I am not a museum goer but this museum shows some FL history. We bought a package admission to the Hardee Country Wildlife Refuge on the same property. Not a bad deal and you help out the animals...  more »
  • Nice park! Absolutely relaxing and nice to take my grand daughter so she can learn how life really was!
  • Really fun to learn more about our history. Lots of outdoors room for the kids to play and to walk the dog. When the weather is right it's always fun to get out and see the museum.
