Heritage Park Exhibit

Heritage Park

The Baker County Historical Society, Inc., along with the City of Macclenny, Baker County Development Commission and concerned citizens, spearheaded a campaign to save the Old Macclenny Depot, built in 1924. In 1985, the Depot was moved to its present site. The building was rotated 180 degrees to maintainitsorientationtotherailroad. Plansforthe restoration of the Depot and the Historical Park were developed in 1988. The caboose was added to the site in 1988.

Today, the park is home to a number of historical buildings representing the history of Baker County.

Come and leisurely stroll along a horseshoe-shaped cement path that winds past numerous mini museums. Each museum showcases exhibits highlighting this unique slice of Florida community history including the county's fascinating moonshine era. In the beautifully restored Burnsed Blockhouse, the last of its kind remaining in the state of Florida, get an up close look at the architecture of early pioneer life. Note the rough, hand-hewn timbers, rambling outdoor porches and detached country kitchen with its chimney constructed of moss and mud.

Enjoy a picnic in one of several covered pavilions or relax in the gazebo of the beautifully landscaped Serenity Gardens.
