Boat House Groundbreaking
The Pinellas County Historical Society, along with a few local partners, will break ground on a new building at Heritage Village.
The boat house, which will be patterned after historical boat shops, will house vintage boats and other maritime materials to celebrate Pinellas County's rich coastal history.
More About Heritage Village
This free outdoor history museum is located on a twenty-one acre tract of native pine and palmetto. There are twenty-eight historic buildings, some dating from the 19th century. Pinellas County's history comes to life as museum-goers explore a school, a church, a sponge warehouse, a railroad depot and several houses. They may see demonstrations of Old Florida activities such as pine needle and palm frond weaving, rope making, net mending, blacksmithing and pioneer cooking. The library contains over 3,500 books and 8,500 photographs.
