  • One of the oldest Holocaust Centers in the nation

    Just a few miles north of Orlando in the city of Maitland (exit 90 of I-4) please visit the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida. It's appropriate for families -- no gruesome images -- and focuses on the stories of local survivors and educating the community about tolerance and character education. It has a modest permanent exhibit, a 6,000 volume library, and a gallery with exhibits. Admission is free; it takes about one hour to see everything.

    BARBERVILLE FLORIDA PIONEER VILLAGE

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    BARBERVILLE FLORIDA SETTLEMENT

    This is the former Pierson Train Depot which, like the other 25+ buildings escaped demolition by being re-erected here.

    Dont look for info on the internet. I have emailed them several times over the past 5 years to get their act together, but their website has a blurry pic and a phone number. It seems their marketing is in the 1880s too LOL.

    DIRECTIONS
    Take Interstate 4 east, go through Orlando and take the Orange City/DeLand exit (Graves Avenue) that leads to U.S. Highway 17-92. Drive through DeLand and DeLeon Springs. U.S. 17-92 becomes U.S. 17. Turn west on Route 40. The settlement is one block past the railroad tracks on the left side.
