The Osceola County Historical Society is pleased with the new additions popping up around the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. During the 25th Annual Pioneer Days, in November 2016, the Osceola County Historical Society was able to present to the public, the late 1800s replica train depot and the replica Narcoossee Schoolhouse, two of the three completed structures as part of the Expansion Project for the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek.
