We enjoyed the boardwalk through the forest, the zip line and touring the homestead house. The combination of history, nature and super-friendly and knowledgeable staff made this an enopyable outing for all ages (toddler through teen and adults).

A fun place to enjoy nature! The employee there was so friendly and went out of her way to show our kids an egg that had a green shell:-). We also enjoyed sugar came coca cola in a glass bottle-the kids loved their "old fashioned" treat!

It was a very soothing experience, shared with my husband and adult daughter who was home for Thanksgiving. When we got up to the tower, we had a chance to meditate in perfect silence except for the sound of birds. We didn't see wildlife but that was OK. We enjoyed a picnic lunch before heading home.The boardwalk hike was a comfortable pace. We enjoyed the chicken coop and its occupants, and the surrounding cabins and general store. It was a nice step back in history.

Fabulous little place. I had lived in the Tampa Bay area for 20 years and never heard of them. They should do some more advertising! Great place.

From Our Editors

At Crowley Museum and Nature Center, a pioneer museum set up like a general store, historic structures, and a sugar-cane mill depict a Florida homestead as it would have existed between 1850 and 1920. At the heart of the homestead is the Tatum-Rawls House, which was built as a single-story house between 1888 and 1892, and is the oldest example of rural architecture in Florida. Over time, it was expanded to accommodate the Tatum clan, by the addition of a second floor, consisting of William Tatum and his wife and eight children, and was recently restored to its original glory with a wide front porch. Elsewhere on the 185-acre expanse, the Crowley Farm continues to pluck away at the land with pigs, cows, and a horse named Sugar who pulls the cane press to make the juice that is later boiled to syrup crystals. Boardwalks and nature trails traverse the delicate swamp, flat woods, and Tatum Sawgrass marsh that contain a variety of wildlife species including white pelicans, swallowtail kites, and eagles.
