Chickees & Cow Camp Fundraiser

Help us reach our $7,000 goal by September 30, 2020.

The Seminole chickees and cow camp at Pioneer Village are in need of repair. First built in 2014 when the village moved to Babb Road, the storms and hurricanes of the last several years have damaged the structures. 

The chickees are authentic structures used by the Seminoles for shelter, community gatherings, and cooking. Cow camps such as the one at Pioneer Village were used by Florida cowmen as they rounded up their herds to take them to market. The structures are part of our permanent collection at Pioneer Village and help tell the story of life in early Osceola County. 

Please consider contributing to our fundraiser to repair and restore these structures. To designate your gift, please enter the word CHICKEES in the notes section as you check out.

If you prefer to mail a donation, checks made payable to Osceola County Historical Society may be mailed to P.O. Box 421996, Kissimmee, FL 34746.

Thank you for your support.
