May is History Month! Celebrate with Osceola County Historical Society (OCHS) all month long. Kick off the festivities with a visit to the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum and check out our free museum displaying the brand new exhibit, Tin Can Tourism, 7 days a week, 9 am to 5 pm. See how early Central Florida settlers lived by exploring the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. OCHS is offering free admission to the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek Monday – Friday from 10 am – Noon throughout the month of May.
Mark your calendars and bring your little ones to a special Story Time at the Museum series every Wednesday 1 pm to 2 pm in May. This month we are reading from the Ordinary People Change the World Series, and creating a themed craft each week! And if all that wasn’t enough, OCHS has partnered with Florida Public Archaeology Network to bring their educational program to the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum on 10 May at 5 pm. Bring the kids and learn about Native American pottery and the techniques used by archaeologists to identify their dig site findings!
Stop by the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum or the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek to learn all about the history and heritage of Osceola County. Enjoy a nature walk through the park connecting the facilities, and see what Osceola County has in store for you.
