What is Obediah’s Okefenok?
It’s the 1800’s Restored Homestead of Obediah Barber (1825-1909) representing the frontier agricultural lifestyle maintained by an early settler at a time when industry and commercial growth was a concern.
The park also displays zoological and biological knowledge obtained by this great swamper. He knew every plant and animal by name, sometimes only by given “swamp names.” Serving as an educational reminder that every living thing has a place on earth, even the strangest of swamp creatures, the employees of Obediah’s Okefenok share a respect for these animals and their habitats as shown and demonstrated throughout the exhibits therein.
Obediah’s is open three days a week,
Friday, Saturday & Sunday only
