About us

What began in 1977 as 10 acres of random structures has grown to a village of more than 30 county’s oldest and most historic buildings spread over 21 acres of natural pine and palmetto landscape.

The Pinellas County Historical Society has been a lifeline of support for Heritage Village for over 35 years, and that role continues to grow and become increasingly more vital.

Funds raised by the Society assist with educational and cultural programs at Heritage Village. Many of our members serve as docents and volunteers in the various structures at the Village.

We assist researchers interested in our county’s history by acquiring materials for the Archives & Library at Heritage Village and by supporting efforts to conserve museum collections.
