Barberville Pioneer SettlementIn 1891 the Palatka & Indian River Railway was chartered to connect the Jacksonville, Tampa & Key West Railway at Palatka with the Florida Southern Railway at Sanford. This eliminated traffic on the St. Johns River. In 1885 this depot was built at Pierson. In 1887 the railroad was sold to the JT&KW. When JT&KW went bankrupt in 1893 the railroad was sold to the Savannah, Florida & Western Railway (the PLANT system). In 1902 SF&W was incorporated into the Atlantic Coast Lines. In 1967 the ACL merged into the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad. In 1985 SCL, which today is part of the CSX system, donated the depot and the caboose to the Barberville Pioneer Settlement and they were moved here.
