Learn about the region’s prehistory in “A Window to the Past,” the only archaeological exhibition in the nation built inside of a shell mound.
Connect with Florida’s intrepid pioneer homesteaders at Sarasota’s first produce packing house, a charming chapel and pioneer cemetery, and the beautifully preserved Guptill House, built in 1901. Experience Mrs. Potter Palmer’s Jungle Walk, lush Sunken Garden, and the Butterfly Garden, one of the largest on the Gulf Coast. At Guptill Boat Yard, enjoy maritime tales.
This “Old Florida” oasis is a special place worth preserving for our community and future generations. We invite your participation and welcome your support! Thank you.
