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.
