Welcome to the Official Website of the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement

The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement, a living-history museum in Blountstown, Florida, has a collection of 18 historical buildings, dating from 1820 to the 1940s. Now arranged on five acres to replicate an idyllic farm community, the buildings were moved from their original locations throughout Calhoun County. During the year, the Settlement is home to numerous events and festivals, and offers classes on the trades and crafts of the past.

We are open 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. CST,
Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday
or by appointment.

Be sure and check out our
calendar for other upcoming events.

The Wellness Initiative Preventative Medicine and Community

Outreach-FaithHealthEdEcon-is designed to serve Calhoun and Liberty Counties in the Panhandle Underserved Area of Critical Need, in Florida.  Volunteer physicians, nurses, and social workers address the need for the control of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity through preventative health care initiatives.  Master Gardening Certification (FAMU, UF/IFAS, PPS) contributes to sustainable gardens that provide non-genetically modified alternatives to healthy eating.  Community education in nutrition, teenage pregnancy prevention, and other issues contributing to societal wellness are embedded in a fifty-two week follow-up program.
FaithHealthEdEcon is designed to enable the underserved to help themselves to help others - in a sustainable plan to decrease the need for welfare - and to restore dignity to humankind.

The model uses the concept of a living-museum - so well exemplified by the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement - to develop ecotourism and economic growth.  through the Wellness Initiative, community Bed and Breakfasts are being restored and rural agrarian development is facilitated.  The innate beauty of the area is environmentally conserved.
