Historic Spanish Point

Discover a piece of old Florida where prehistoric middens, pioneer homesteads, and lush gardens await. One of the last remaining protected coastal properties open to the public, this expansive outdoor museum will take you back in time to the old charm that brought you to Sarasota in the first place. Come and explore our tranquil trails, breathtaking bay vistas, and over 5,000 years of history. Historic Spanish Point is and outdoor history museum and one of the largest intact, actively preserved archaeological sites of the prehistoric period on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Discover prehistoric shell mounds, explore how early pioneers established homesteads, and relax in the many formal gardens of the early 20th-century socialite, Bertha Palmer. Explore the expansive outdoor museum at your own leisure, or enjoy a docent-led walking, tram, or boat tours to immerse yourself in the rich history of the area. We invite you and your family to take a step back in time, soak in the lush landscapes, and savor a piece of Florida's past at Historic Spanish Point; where people have gathered for over 5,000 years. Historic Spanish Point was the first in Sarasota County to be designated as a historically significant location by the National Register of Historic Places; a program of The United States Department of Interior.
