This is a very special spot next to the Florida Botannical Gardens and invites you to get a feel of what life and living was like 'back in the day'. The docents are very pleasant and knowledgeable. There are also special events held in the Village throughout the year. All this is FREE of charge!

This is a Pinellas County Park adjacent to the Botanical Garden. It is free of charge and open most days. There is a reception center with a small museum and rest rooms. They have a collection of buildings that have been moved to the site. Some are open for a self-guided tour, like the log cabin, school house, church, small... More

We enjoy the variety of buildings from various settings and lifestyles across history in the state of Florida. Great demonstrations that vary from day to day. Our favorite is buying Coca Cola in glass bottles in the general store! Very nicely preserved. Would highly recommend their Heritage Festival with a lot of re-enactments.

We went during one of their farm days and had a blast. My son made homemade ice cream, helped weave a rug and ran around the old train station. He also played on the farm by tilling the land, pumping water and watering the garden. It was a fun day.

I make it a point to bring out of town guests to this wonderful free destination. Old buildings saved from destruction and transported to this shaded, landscaped area for us to enjoy. You can visit actual homes, a general store, a schoolhouse and an old church all in one location. A lot of history, some education, a taste of the... More

We went there on the recommendation from the concierge from our hotel. It was great, lots of history, it is free, they accept donations of course! They had a docent who took us thru a house, in character, fabulous. Those were hardy folks. We walked around in a lovely park setting looking at houses from the 1800's. we were lucky... More

My Husband and I spent several hours at this wonderful place. Run by volunteers who were all very welcoming and each of them provided us with a great insight to how the are was developed and the key families who lived there - the guides to the houses were full of information and very open to questions. Each of the... More

A step back in time to a bygone era when everything was less hectic....perhaps tougher though. The displays are extremely well done. Considering they have only 3 permanent staff, relying on volunteers for almost everything, the place is amazing. Don't overlook visiting the adjacent botantical gardens.

This is a great attraction for those curious about Florida history and the beginnings of Pinellas County. The docents are very knowledgeable. There are a number of programs throughout the year. It's best to avoid it during the summer months (bugs), but much of it is shaded, so it can be a respite from the hot sun.
