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...
