Manatee Village Historical Park

In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our visitors and staff, Manatee Village Historical Park will be closed to the public until further notice.

We will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments and look forward to re-opening to serve the public as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.
