About Cracker Country Living History Museum

Location:

4800 Hwy 301 N, Tampa, FL 33610, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide guests with quality interpretive programs and educational opportunities about rural Florida history and folklife.

Description

Cracker Country, a rural Florida living history museum, was established in 1978 by Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Carlton, Jr. so future generations might better understand and appreciate Florida's rural heritage. From the rustic cypress log corn crib to the grand old two-story Carlton house, Cracker Country features thirteen original buildings dating from 1870-1912. These buildings were moved to their present location from throughout the state, then restored and furnished with antiques of the period. Educational programs are offered throughout the year for school groups, non-school youth groups, and adults.
