Children’s Corner

Snuggled into a corner of the Museum is a special place for young children to enjoy while their parents browse through the exhibits. With low chairs placed beside an old fireplace mantle from a pioneer dwelling, this is just the right place for looking at picture books or rocking one of the old dolls.

A braided rug before the fireplace sees many small boys building forts with Lincoln logs and playing with miniature soldiers. There are also coloring books with pictures of Indians, shells and animals.

A tall mirror invites children to dress up with a raccoon cap, cowboy and Indian outfits, a party dress and beads, Seminole skirts or other intriguing items.

On shelves nearby, there are Indian artifacts as well as shells and arrowheads, skulls of turtles and an armadillo. A model of a Timaquan village, made as a class project by a local middle-school student, is a favorite of most children.

A sign invites the children to "Please Handle!"
