The Pinellas Pioneer Settlement is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to authentically recreate the life styles of Pinellas County pioneers through the relocation or recreation of period buildings and education about the skills, crafts, and social customs of early settlers. Located adjacent to Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, the Settlement is a living history museum experience where visitors can observe and take part in the skills, crafts and social customs of late 19th century life in west central Florida.
Highlights include the Brantley Building (1888), Endicott House (1898), the Blacksmith shop, Saw Mill, Sugar Cane shed, Print Shop and Pole Barn. These buildings have been the backdrop of Civil War enactments, music festivals, antique engine shows, family fun days and other period themed events.
In addition, Pioneer Day Camps are offered several times a year and through the summer for children in grades two through eight. Campers experience a time when family, friendship and integrity were as important as food, water and shelter. Activities are adapted from the Association of Experiential Education to foster team building, leadership and self esteem.
Now offering Pioneer Birthday Parties. Include a hayride and overnight stay or come just for the day.
In addition to events, we're open the

Volunteer meetings are the 2nd Monday of each month
and Board meetings are on the 4th Thursday.
These begin at 7:30pm at Boyd Hill.
UPDATE: June - July, meet the 4th Thursday of the month only.
