Manatee Village Historical Park

For much of Florida's history, the home was essential to all family activities and to survival. This included the care of children, preparation of meals, protection from the elements, and entertainment. Families gathered in kitchens and parlors to read, sew, whittle or talk at the end of the day, much like many families today gather to watch television.

Come inside to learn more about the family that built and lived in this remarkable home. Find out why pioneers designed their homes like this and how they survived living in the wilds of Florida.
