Long Description:
In 1992, the City of St. Cloud created and the Peghorn Nature Park to preserve their history. The Peghorn Nature Park protects the habitat of many native plants and animals. The name Peghorn is derived form the cattle raised in the area in the 1900s; the cattle had unique wood peg shaped horns. Much of the surrounding area has been developed, leaving behind a small piece of native Florida wetland. The 58 acre passive park takes its visitors on a journey beginning in the late 1800s to modern day. A cracker village consisting of a replica of an old wooden schoolhouse that once stood in St. Cloud, a cannery, a blacksmith shed, a barn, vegetable and flower gardens and a “natural playground” preserves the disappearing local heritage.
Date placed: 1/1/1992
