Homeland Heritage Park
This unique park is home to several original structures from 19th-century pioneer life in Florida, including an 1800s farmhouse, school and church.
About Homeland Heritage Park
The Homeland Methodist Church was built in 1887 across the street from its present day location. It was moved to the park in 1986. Homeland was originally called Bethel, which was named after the Methodist Church. A church building was used prior to the one built in 1887 and was located ¾ of a mile west of the park location.
The first building used for the services was a log structure that had holes for windows, but did not have any glass. This primitive structure was too small for the growing community and relocated to Wilson property located across the street from the current location of Homeland Heritage Park.
