    • Morningside Nature Center -  Cubmaster Mike's personal choice as to what fulfills this requirement the best.  Visit on a Saturday and you will be treated to "Living History Days" where adults in period costume and character share what life was like on a frontier farm in Florida.  Watch an actual blacksmith forge nails, horseshoes, etc.  Visit a frontier school and home.  Low-key, fascinating, hands-on, and fun!

    • Dudley Farm - "History is Alive"  - Learn how a farm worked back in the 1800's when Florida was founded.  Visit http://www.friendsofdudleyfarm.org/ to get all the admission information you need, including cost, hours and contact numbers.

    • Matheson House - One of the oldest houses in Gainesville, they will run a tour for your den or rank that shows how people lived way back when.  The Matheson House is open by appointment.
