Every year, thousands of visitors from throughout the world step back into a time at Heritage Village, Pinellas County’s living history museum.

Who We Are

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 forever 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 researches interesting in our county’s history by acquiring materials for the Archives & Library at Heritage Village and by supporting efforts to conserve museum collections.

What We Do

Historical Society funding helps in the acquisition, development, and preservation o Heritage Village’s renowned historical structures and collections – the buildings, archives, and artifacts – that represent the community’s collective memory displayed for all to enjoy. Ongoing acquisitions make this treasured resource even more valuable.
