LEARN ABOUT PIONEER CEMETERY AT HISTORICAL VILLAGE HOLIDAY DISPLAY

November 24, 2021 – This year’s holiday exhibit at the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village will focus on the history of each of its nine historical buildings. The exhibit, ““Trees, Timelines, and Special Memories” opens December 3 and runs through January 9.

After much research, village volunteers found each building to have an interesting history all its own. A timeline will be exhibited in each building telling the tale of that building’s life through the years. Holiday trees and exhibits will reflect the items found on the timelines.

In keeping with the theme of the Historical Village’s holiday displays, visitors can learn some interesting information about the Sanibel “pioneer cemetery.” Located along the bike path off Casa Ybel Road adjacent to Gulfside City Park, the land was donated by the Rev. George Barnes’ family near the turn of the 20

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to eight of the nine buildings. Admission is FREE for SHMV members and $15 for non-members (adults ages 18 years and up).  For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
