Whenever we are on vacation in the Bradenton area we make a special point of stopping at Manatee Village Historical Park. We love this walk back in time to the history of Florida. The authentic buildings are so beautifully cared for by caretakers who love them as if they were their own. My great uncle owned an old grocery store so the general store reminded me of that with the sundries and home remedies and tools, etc. The law office and court house where justice was served reminded me of what the Constitution really means. All of the village situated in such a metro area was so different. I leave with this, our favorite building was the United Methodist Church, which is still operational for special occasions. It’s steeple stands so proud and regally into the skyline and we loved it! Kids will delight in the train engine. There are additional buildings to see, so allow enough time to do everything. Make sure you stop in at the gift shop - some really cool things. Definitely a great place to visit!
