This small, but informative park sums up the community of Palmetto perfectly. I use it often for family photo sessions as it's shaded well and the buildings are beautiful and well kept. The quaint church in the village is the perfect location for a small,...More

A must see if you're visiting Palmetto, Fl. This is a wonderful step back in time. And you can get your mail postmarked on special occasion. Watch the calendar for special events.

This was a great way to relive some childhood memories and give our grandchildren a peek into the past. A very well preserved area that is very quiet despite being near the city. With a park across the street!

I attended the National Day of Prayer at the historical Park. It is comprised of several older buildings that are very well maintained. The post office, old school house, chapel, historical museum along with the library are very nice. Several couples have exchanged wedding vows...More

Interesting learning for young and old. Farming in the Palmetto. See life in the area in the early 1900's. The development of families and the farming life . Go from building to building and walk through a lovely area in the heart of Palmetto.

Very friendly, welcoming and community oriented historical park. Nice step back in time with a blend of old and new. They present a nice array of events that appeal to a wide range of people. Very much worth the visit.

A great spot to step back in time and learn the history of this sleepy little town where I grew up. The buildings have been restored and contain lots of historical information. The center area has been paved with red bricks, reminding me of riding...More
