“Historic Surprise”

The Raney House Museum
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 August 2013

The ladies at the Raney House are a wealth of historic knowledge. I had had no idea of the role of the Florida panhandle in the cotten industry in the 1800's. The house, itself, is well preserved and well appointed with period furnishings. Well worth the time.

You can't come to Apalachicola and not visit these old houses. The Raney House takes about 30 minutes for a guided tour by one of the knowledgeable docents. We learned a lot about the civil war, Florida in the 1800's and the Raney Family.

Visits are by donations and all donations go to the upkeep of the house since the docents are paid through a local historical society.

A beautiful old home that survived the civil war. The heart of pine floors are just gorgeous!The house is filled with antiques. The tour guide was so very knowledgeable and answered our 4th grader's numerous questions. Beautiful home with great history. Plan to spend about an hour here. We were walking in town and decided to stop. What a good idea!
