I spent my afternoon at the Florida Natural History Museum in Gainesville, which has a great collection of fossils, Native American artifacts, & wonderful displays of Florida ecosystems. The museum itself is free, but I recommend also buying a ticket ($11 for adult Florida residents) for the butterfly rainforest, the amazing screened-in garden complete with birds, turtles, waterfalls, koi, and of course lots of butterflies.  #museum #florida #gainesville #naturalhistorymuseum #fossils #deadthings #history #floridahistory #naturalhistory #butterflies #butterflyrainforest #freeactivities @floridamuseum

Near Horseshoe Beach in Dixie County located in a wilderness area is this lone Condederate Soldier gravesite. Henry M. Smith is buried here and he lived from 1840-1892. So far this is the history I have been able to find "Henry was a private in Company I of the 3rd Florida Infantry regiment. He enlisted in August 1861 and was discharged in April 1865. He was wounded during the battle at Perryville, Kentucky on October 11, 1862". #floridatrailblazer #hikeflorida #oldflorida #floridahistory #cemetery #gravesite #floridaexplored #exploreflorida #roamflorida #confederate #civilwar #southernhistory
Remains from Etna ghost town in Citrus County. Etna was turpentine camp with a small community of about 200 people or so in the early 1900's. Farmers, workers and their families populated the area. There were many buildings, a commissary, turpentine still, post office, a sink for water, a sawmill, miles of tram roads and a steam engine locomotive was eventually used for transporting logs. The town was eventually abandoned around 1915 or so, the commissary may have stayed in business up until the early 1920's. #floridatrailblazer #floridahistory #hikeflorida #oldflorida #roamflorida #pureflorida

Tallahassee and friends. Tallahassee was rarely seen without his gun. Native Americans living in Florida by the time photography was becoming common would have dressed much different than their ancestors of course. Many were photographed with European stylings such as long coats, boors, and pocket watches, and a mix of attire both native and European Floridian. Many made careers of being tourist looky- loos, earning a meager living from the exploitation of their own past and supporting their families. Find out more about the state's First People sometime.  #storieshere  #nativeamerican #floridian #seminoleindians #musckogee #firstpeople #florida #floridahistory #floridawriter #oldflorida #sunshinestate #colonialism #history
