Crowley Museum and Nature Center

16405 Myakka Road
Sarasota, FL 34240


About Us:

The museum at Crowley depicts the time between 1850-1920 and is laid out like an early Florida homestead. The site contains a one-room “Homesteader” cabin typical of those built by pioneers when they first arrived to an unsettled area and contains furnishings and utensils that early pioneers would have used. Circa 1889-1892, William H. Tatum built the two-story Tatum House with the help of his two stepsons. Over the years, the house was expanded to accommodate the couple’s 13 children.
