Description

Originally home to cattleman Robert Roberts, this 13-acre living history museum offers a rare glimpse of daily life on an actual Southwest Florida ranch from the early 1900s. Displays and carefully preserved buildings tell the story of those who struggled to tame a sprawling wildernewss on the edge of the Big Cypress Swamp at the turn of the last century. National Register of Historic Places listed site.
