If you're interested in Florida history, this ranks high. But for me, it was like stepping back into my Swedish grandparents' home in New England - the furniture, appliances, and kitchen tools were all quite familiar. I enjoyed our visit immensely from this viewpoint as well as learning a lot about local history, narrated by knowledgeable docents.

For a $5 contribution I received a personal tour and learned about a man from Sweden (via Minneapolis) who was a successful businessman despite his 6th grade education. Recommended!

A lovely old historical home/farm in Vero Beach Florida where not too many of these exist. Vero is a wonderful coastal town known for its beaches and arts but the mainland has its share of great things too. Call before visiting The HH to get the hours it is open.

This brick home was designed and built by Axel Hallstrom around 1910. TheHallstrom family gave it to the Indian River County Historical Society in 2000 with much of its contents intact. Hallstrom was a successful Swedish agriculturalist who had the foresight to plant citrus grafted to localized sour orange trees and so survived the major frosts of the early 1900s.... More
