Stopped by for a Rainy Day Visit. Not a lot to see, but, you get the islands history and the Rangers are full of good suggestions. The historic house was nice to tour.

We enjoyed our visit. The exhibits were very interesting and the historical home self tour was also very interesting. Loved seeing the old mixing bowls and sink, etc., which my family used in the 50's-70's.

Tucked away in Cedar Key, this Park is a great way to spend a few hours. The exhibits are very informative and well kept. The rangers are friendly and, the site is clean and relaxing. No crowds here. So, take your time and enjoy.
