City Dignitaries Visit Historical Village

November 11, 2019 – City VIPs took time out from their busy schedules to visit and tour the Sanibel Historical Village recently. They watched the village’s new orientation video for visitors and then toured the buildings and grounds.

The historical village, its grounds, buildings, and artifacts are owned by the city of Sanibel and managed by the 501(c)3 that is the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village. “We were so happy to host city officials and show them how well we are managing this valuable gem and also show them what an asset the village is to the city,” said village Executive Director Emilie Alfino.

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Full guided tours take place at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no additional charge, depending on docent availability. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access. Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free.

The museum will remain open during the BIG ARTS construction project. The project will possibly continue through January, but parking and access for village guests and volunteers will be available throughout that time. Signage is in place to properly direct visitors.

For more information, call (239) 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
