Take a stroll back in time...
Our mission is to preserve and share the heritage of Manatee County's founding period (1840-1918).
With free admission and 14 points of interest, this is a great way to learn about the history of Manatee County and Old Florida long before paved roads and electricity.
We are located at 1404 Manatee Avenue East
(SR 64), Bradenton, FL 34208
Our entrance is on 14th Street East
(see map below)
Just look for "Old Cabbage Head,"
our 1913 Baldwin Locomotive,
welcoming visitors to the museum.
Manatee Village Historical Park is primarily accessible for differently-abled individuals. Due to the historic nature of our buildings, visitors may be offered an alternative experience.
