The Florida Pioneer Museum focuses on the people who settled South Dade early in the 20th century. It also has a number of artifacts, books and photographs about Henry Flagler’s Key West Extension, which was converted to a highway after the Labor Day hurricane of 1935. Tools used by the early settlers of the area are on display, as well as photographs of some of the people. Family names like Waldin, Bird, Chandler, Lucerne and Stiling are among the people covered. There are also displays about the Upper Keys and the Native American inhabitants of the area, as well as a well-equipped early kitchen. The Museum is open from November 1 to April 30 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
