One Room Schoolhouse in Brooksville, Florida, Offering a Glimpse into History The replica of a 1885 One-Room Schoolhouse was opened to the public for the first time this weekend providing a glimpse into history adding another great place to go and see when in Brooksville, Florida.

What's being Dug up at Chinsegut Hill in Brooksville, Florida? Today was Archaeology Day at Chinsegut Hill in Brooksville, Florida and this was another great opportunity to visit this great historical site with it's beautiful Antebellum mansion. The Chinsegut Hill mansion and its auxiliary buildings have been under restoration for several months now and it was good to see the work progressing in restoring this historical home to it's former glory. Now another project is under way and that is to research and document all aspects of the rich history of Chinsegut Hill.  The result will be an archaeological and historical landscape study of the site, in part funded by the Florida Office of Historic Preservation.
