We do this through our museum exhibits and collection of historical and replica buildings. We have two permanent exhibits: "One Century Plus of Ranching in Manatee County" in the Wiggins General Store and "Life on the Florida Frontier" in the 1912 Settlers House. In addition to our exhibits, we also host special events like lectures, book signings, festivals, workshops, and demonstrations.

Tour cost: $6.00 (please pay by Venmo or zelle) Zelle: [masked] Venmo: @Julie-Bishop-48 Join us for a look back in time at what plantation life was like at the oldest building in Manatee County! You can escape the heat in our air-conditioned museum as well as experience what it was like to not have power in our historic 1840s Greek Revival style 10-room mansion by guided tour. The park boasts 17 acres of manicured lawns, a large pavilion and picnic area that are perfect for your next family reunion, wedding, fitness training, dog walking or reading a book. After the mansion tour we will go for a Geo walk and some of the beautiful 17 acres of land. After our walk picnic tables are available for use behind the mansion, where we will have a wonderful picnic together. Please provide your own food and drinks.
Happy New Year I hope every one is well and that this year is starting out better than last. I am looking forward to an entire year of trips and events, I refuse to let COVID slow me down this year. I am very cautious as to where we travel and I abide by all the CDC regulations and recommendations. Our trip to Egypt was fabulous. I also am a stickler on wearing masks and using hand sanitizer. I have been told by many that I am the "busiest" group on Meetup and I plan on staying that way. For the past year I have absorbed a lot of expenses through cancellations, paper, ink, hours spent, supplies, gas, and so much more. This year I am charging a membership of $25.00 per year and this must be paid before you can join any event or vacation. Any money left over at the end of the year will go into the year end raffle. Please RSVP on this event if you have paid your DUES. These are the ways you can pay: 1. Cash in person 2. Pay at next event 3. Zelle: [masked] 4. Venmo: @Julie-Bishop-48 5. PayPal: [masked] 6.
