The December 1, 1911 “Kissimmee Valley Gazette” reported “One of the most frightful wrecks of a passenger train ever known in this section occurred last night just as train No. 85 of the Atlantic Coast Line was entering the city limits, although no one was seriously injured except Mr. L.C. Royal, the baggage master, who was badly crushed from falling trunks.”
The Osceola County Historical Society had a very busy year in 2016 and was awarded a grant from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs to continue the expansion of the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek, and was able to present a new addition: a late 1800s replica Train Depot! The Train Depot made it's grand debut on November 11, 2016 during the 25th Annual Pioneer Day event, which was their largest event to date.
