The Palmetto Historical Park offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of Palmetto and the area on the north side of the Manatee River. The 1914 Carnegie Library, turn-of-the-century cottage, and replica chapel give a glimpse into the pioneer lifestyle. While touring the park, children of all ages can check for mail at the 1880 Post Office and write on slates in the Schoolhouse. The newest addition to the Park, Cyprus House Military Museum, is a salute to those who have served our country in the armed forces. The Palmetto Historical Park is a joint project of the Palmetto Historical Commission, Manatee County Clerk of Circuit Court, the Manatee County Board of County Commission, and the City of Palmetto.

Exhibits

Visit the Palmetto Historical Park and step back in time with a guided tour of our historic buildings. Stroll along brick pathways lined with old-fashioned street lamps. Relax on park benches and enjoy the tranquility of the past. Children will enjoy discovering the tiny doors throughout the park and finding the tiny keys left behind by our magical residents. Don't forget to stop by our Sensory Garden designed to be welcoming to visitors of all abilities, the garden has an ADA ramp, and plants that appeal to each of the five senses.
