Baker County, established in 1883 in northeast Florida is an area of rich history and colorful traditions. Many of the county's current residents are direct descendants of the pioneering families that settled here in the 1800s. The legacy of those families and the pioneer spirit and traditions they have passed down is today lovingly preserved in the county's history repository known as Heritage Park Village.
Come and leisurely stroll along a horseshoe-shaped cement path that winds past numerous mini museums. Each museum showcases exhibits highlighting this unique slice of Florida community history including the county's fascinating moonshine era. In the beautifully restored Burnsed Blockhouse, the last of its kind remaining in the state of Florida, get an up close look at the architecture of early pioneer life. Note the rough, hand-hewn timbers, rambling outdoor porches and detached country kitchen with its chimney constructed of moss and mud.
Enjoy a picnic in one of several covered pavilions or relax in the gazebo of the beautifully landscaped Serenity Gardens.
