    How did Kissimmee get its name? What is a “Cracker”? Who was Osceola? Where can I find out more about my Central Florida ancestors? How did St. Cloud get settled? Answer these questions and many others with a visit to the Osceola County Historical Society! Whether you are a resident of Central Florida or one of our many visitors from around the world, you can spend an enjoyable day at the Pioneer Village and Museum. Explore the historic Ross Lanier House (1889), sit in a one-room Schoolhouse, examine the workings of Citrus Packing House (1882), ponder the daily routine of a Florida Cracker Cow Man at the Cow Camp, browse the many exhibits of the Museum (including the turn-of-the-century Tress News Stand), then make a purchase at the Tyson General Store (1887). Then take a break and have a family picnic among the sweet fragrances of our Orange Grove. Researchers will enjoy browsing our genealogical records or historical maps and archives. Teachers can lead their students through a living history experience at our site. Since 1949, the mission of the Osceola County Historical Society has been to preserve Osceola’s rich past while sharing it with others.
