The Honey House, which originally stood in Iola, Florida (near Wewahitchka), is the oldest honey house in the entire state of Florida. It has been moved to the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement's farmstead, standing near our Syrup House. Thanks to the generosity of our members, the Honey House is currently being restored, having been saved from the sure ruin of neglect.
The Honey House Restoration Fund
The Honey House Restoration Fund campaign, which ran from September 2013 to August 2014, raised $5,961, which was contributed by 62 individuals and couples.
"This campaign was a big win for the Settlement because it not only demonstrated that our members understand the value of historic preservation, but that they are just as capable as any grant-awarding government agency to fund a worthwhile project," said Settlement co-founder Willard Smith. "We are extremely proud that our members took ownership of this project, getting the restoration well underway."
