Their mission is to share the heritage and traditions of Lee County and preserve them for future generations to appreciate and understand. Pioneer Park serves as a historical destination that offers many great exhibits, events, and displays. The museum is currently made up of nine structures: the Old Trade Center, the Ruth Purdy Speake Cabin, the Taylor Whatley Building, the Blacksmith Shop, Doctor McLain’s Office, the Loachapoka Gin Office, the Cook House, and a reconstruction of the Loachapoka Jail. A band stand is used for outdoor concerts, entertainment, and classes.  Recently, several gardens have been added to Pioneer Park to complement living history activities. The most recent addition is the Barnard-Newell Log House along with its Native American Garden.


Historic homes and the Lee County Historical Society Pioneer Park are located in the district listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The park is home to the annual Syrup Sopping Day and Arts & Crafts Festival!
