Archer Historical Society Railroad Museum
Archer started in the 1840's as a frontier village named Deer Hammock or Darden's Hammock. By 1858, the Florida Railroad reached the village. The site of the town was shifted eastward, and christened Archer, after James T. Archer, Florida's first Secretary of State (1845-49). The first trains stopped in Archer in 1859.
