Mission Statement

Our Mission is to acquire, document, research, preserve, and restore building, artifacts and tools that were used in work and daily life of the pioneers of the Florida Panhandle region. These collection are used to educate and share the experience of pioneer lifestyles and values with future generations.

Description

Museum with Historic sites.

When you come to the settlement you take a trip back into time. The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement is a living Museum. Set From 1830's to the 1940's, seventeen historical buildings were moved onto our site and five were built on site. The documents and buildings of Panhandle history are located at Sam B. Atkins Park in Blountstown, Florida and arranged to simulate an agricultural community and serve the public as a rural living history museum. Our exhibits and educational programs for adults and children offer hands-on experience. Every year we offer our tours to the general public and educational classes to the school districts and the 4-h Club. The Settlement was developed with small groups of men and women donating both time and energy, soliciting memberships, and writing grant proposals to acquire funds for historical preservation.
