Homeschool Day at Cracker Country

What do commercial fishing, tourism, cattle ranching and citrus farming have in common? They are all pioneering Florida industries that were shaped by the natural resources of the Sunshine State. Students will take part in activities like sorting oranges, packing for a cattle drive, casting a fish net and more that highlight some of the earliest economic drivers in the developing state of Florida. Educators in historic dress will welcome guests to the 1885 Carlton House, the Okahumpka Railroad Depot, Terry General Store, School House and more structures authentic to Florida around the turn of the 20th century.
