  • What a beautiful quaint and charming historical village right in the heart of Palmetto! We loved everything about this place from the early history to its current location. The church was beautiful...  more »
  • It reminded me of Storrowtown Village and Sturbrdge Village in Massachusetts. Very quaint and interesting.  more »
  • This is an amazing, impressive place loaded with information. I am embarrassed to say I have lived in Sarasota 20 years and been to Palmetto on numerous occasions but never spent time at this gem. I will be back!
  • Nice small historical site... Take tour, 2 pm, to see inside buildings... Victory garden...
