Great for a history buff, loaded with antiques, captures a bye-gone era

First - know that the map here on T A is WRONG. The Farmstead is about 4 miles south of where this site says - use another source. The home is a delightful relic from the early days here in rural Florida, but the house and original furnishings are first class. The docents weave a fascinating tale of the family... More

We were part of a group of 6 friends as we got out of the van we were met by the head of the museum. He was a very polite and knowledgeable man. There was another tour about the same size as ours. They worked it around very wll that the two groups didn't interfere with each other.

This is not a busy tourist attraction which makes it perfect in my book. We were the only two people there so we got a private tour. The docent was very enthusiastic and friendly and gave us plenty of time to ask questions and look at everything. It's an old pineapple plantation. The house is amazingly modern considering how old... More

As I pulled in, several guides were sitting on the front porch enjoying the peace and quiet. The house is very absorbing, and the volunteers were vert knowledgeable. Fascinating details throughout really brought the era of early Florida to life. It was easy to imagine all the windows open with the breeze blowing through and the operations of the property...

Interesting and a bit different than the norm. Maybe worth stopping once to see but don't think a repeat trip is necessary.

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!

Step back into early 1900s and experience life in Indian River to the present. Excellent guided tour of the house with original furnishings, wall colors and unchanged floor plan. Axel Hallstrom designed and oversaw construction of the lovely (and incredibly sturdy) house where he lived until 1962. His daughter Ruth lived there till her death in 1999 at age 95.... More

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.
