Sams House at Pine Island Conservation Area 360-degree Tour
On November 12th, I visited the Sams House at Pine Island Conservation Area in Merritt Island, Florida. Located in the northern area of Merritt Island and only a short distance to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, the Sams House is a historical landmark in Brevard County. It is the oldest home in the county and sits on a beautiful piece of land along the Indian River Lagoon.
Take a look at the amazing 360-degree panoramic images I captured during my visit. There is so much more to the Sams House at Pine Island Conservation area that I did not photograph, as you really need to experience this place in person. There is plenty of trails to hike, guided tours, wildlife viewing, geocaching, a nature center and more. Click through the 17 images in the virtual tour below and learn more about this historic site.
From the Sams House at Pine Island Conservation area website:
From Ice Age animals to Native Americans to early pioneers, Pine Island Conservation Area has a rich history. Mastodon tusks, pottery sherds, and 19th-century farm tools found on-site help piece together the story of this special place.
Come inside the oldest standing home in Brevard County, the 1875 Sams family cabin. Travel back in time here and along the paved trail where interactive exhibits highlight Pine Island’s many past inhabitants.
Enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking through five different habitats and over six miles of trails. Wading birds, bald eagles, alligators, manatees, and bobcats are just a few of the animals that you may see. The Environmentally Endangered Lands Program and the St. Johns River Water Management District jointly own this over 880-acre site.
