The oldest structure in Pinellas County, it was built in 1852 by Captain James  McMullen near Clearwater. I guess they didn’t have to worry about vacuuming.

Built in 1878, this was a temporary one room shelter that survived over 100 years.

On the wall just inside of the temporary bedroom was the above picture showing it as it originally stood before it was moved to Heritage Village in 1978.

  1. Such a charming collection of old buildings, representing that simpler but harder time. Loved seeing them! Great photos! You might consider linking in with Roan at Rubbish Tuesday (the word rubbish doesn’t indicate that her meme is for anything old, vintage–treasure or otherwise– as well as the cast-aside). It’s a great place for pictures of things from the past.
