We highly recommend a visit to Heritage Village. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions. They go out of their way to make your visit rewarding. The preserved buildings and artifacts are so well done you are thrust back into another period of time long before the internet, even long before me. This has to be... More

There in the heart of the modern buzz is a collection of buildings which reveals a community's history. From the House Of Seven Gables to the Sulfur Springs Depot each of the 28 structures show a piece of Florida's development. The House of the Seven Gables has a guided tour which explains the antiques in each room. The setting is... More

A nice collection of period building brought together at one location as an interpretive centre of Florida. The collection is extensive, in particular the General Store/Barber Shop/Telegraph Office. The whole place looks like something from a Norman Rockwell painting. The message however is sometimes myopic and begs for some honest interpretation. The train station for example, has two waiting rooms... More

If you wonder what Florida was like in earlier times when there were less people and no super highways, this is the place to experience at least the houses and buildings that were around. Excellent preservation and good explanations. A small gift shop and a good museum. Worth the time to visit.

It seems like at least one a month there is some sort of festival nestled in amongst historic homes set in atmosphere of a late 1800s village. The natural environment provides a pleasant shady stroll for one and all.

Enjoyed wandering around this museum of historical buildings complete with furnishings and the implements used during daily use by the early settlers of this area. One tour guide, Brenda, in the "doctors house" was very well informed, friendly, and a wonderful addition to this attraction. She made learning about the early history and families of the area so interesting -... More

I was quite surprised how many buildings there were. We went for the festival & went through all of the historical buildings. Unfortunately, during the festival they close off the upstairs of the houses. My thinking is that the steps are narrow & with all of the people, they don't want people squeezing up & down the steep steps &... More

Really enjoyed wandering through over 30 buildings learning about the history of the area -- & it's free. Wonderful volunteers explained how the buildings were acquired, moved, & used in the 1900s. Wed-Sat 10-4, Sun 1-4. Next to the free Florida Botanical Gardens where you can wander through different landscapes.

We spent a few hours here... the volunteers are so friendly. The house of 7 gables tour was quite interesting, and my wife talked to the local quilters group about the quilts and techniques for an hour! Would be fun when all the buildings are open with full staff of volunteers!
