Pine Castle Pioneer Days

Forward to the Past

This is the third and final image I’ll be posting from the Pine Castle Pioneer Days event I attended Sunday. Walking past one of the seating areas, I spotted this awkward intersection of history and modern convenience. I subjected myself to far too many hours watching Little House on the Prairie as a child, and I don’t recall Michael Landon ever going into Oleson’s Mercantile for a cold Aquafina or Dasani bottled water. I bet he would have liked to, though.

The Rifleman

I shot this photo yesterday at the annual Pine Castle Pioneer Days festival. Yes, there used to be an actual pine castle here: it was the private residence of Kentucky transplant Will Harney during the years immediately following the Civil War. The Pioneer Days festival celebrates the rich history of this small Central Florida community.
