Panhandle Pioneer Settlement In Florida

Panhandle Pioneer Settlement brings together the material history of life between 1840
and the beginning of World War II. The mission is to acquire, document, research, and restore
buildings and tools that were used in daily life. The settlement is arranged to simulate an
agricultural community and serve the public as a rural living history museum. The settlement is
located in Blountstown Florida, a rural community in the Florida panhandle (Calhoun County) about
halfway between Panama City and Tallahassee.
PPS relies heavily on volunteers. There are five FHU 50/35 amp
campsites for full-time work campers. In addition, work campers have use of a laundry facility and
three sites have access to the internet through the settlement's wi-fi network.
Work camper duties vary. PPS asks for ten hours per week per person, but
work campers are expected to participate fully in the setup, conduct, and cleanup involved with the
community events held at the settlement. Please check out www.panhandlepioneer.org/events.htm for

settlement. These buildings can be dated back to 1820. They are usually in need of some
kind of maintenance. There is numerous donated antique tools, machinery, etc. that is always in
need of upkeep, restoration and display.
We have a country store/gift shop that is our gift shop and is staffed by
our work campers/local volunteers, there are tours of the settlement for the visitors and should a work
camper wish they would be trained to give these tours (this is not a requirement should you not feel
comfortable doing so), and our events are enjoyable and educational.
Should you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with a walk back in time we would
love to have you as a work camper. We do not necessarily have a specific time limit for our work
campers, should you choose to stay a couple of months or as long as a year, we are open to all
possibilities. For a look at our facilities go to www.panhandlepioneer.org/.
