FLORIDA PIONEER MUSEUM
Florida Pioneer Museum – Website of the Florida Pioneer Museum in Florida City, Florida
The Florida Pioneer Museum in Florida City dates back to 1962 and the City of Homestead. The Florida East Coast Railway owned two bungalows which were the homes of the FEC section foreman and station agent. They were located on adjacent lots on the east side of S. Flagler just south of the Landmark Hotel. One of them, the station agent’s home, is the building the Museum is housed in now. The other one, the section foreman’s home, burned down. The FEC also still owned its Homestead depot, which was located on the west side of N. Flagler just south of N.E. 2nd Dr.
Currently on display at the Museum is a collection of antique typewriters and business machines. For a more detailed description of the show and a few photographs, please click on the Events tab.
The Florida Pioneer Museum is located at 826 N. Krome Avenue in Florida City, Florida. You can’t miss us – we’re in the old F.E.C. railway station agent’s home, built-in 1904. It’s painted Flagler yellow and has a porch in front. Come sit for a spell.
Our hours of operation are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Museum closed for the season on Saturday, April 30, 2016. We will open again, hopefully, in November. If you would like to make an appointment to visit the museum before early November, that can be arranged.
