The Ponce Inlet Historic Museum, located at 143 Beach Street, contains two historic Florida Cracker-style cottages that have been restored to their original layout. The Museum is dedicated to education through the preservation and dissemination of the history and cultural heritage of the Town of Ponce Inlet.
The Museum welcomes school groups and other groups interested in an educational tour, A Journey into the past of Ponce Inlet. Students will learn about the Native Americans who first lived in the area, the first Europeans to arrive here, and the pioneering families of Ponce Inlet. They will tour the home of the last civilian lighthouse keeper and see the last post office in Ponce Inlet. Following the tour, the students will have an opportunity to make a toy like ones the pioneer children played with back in the day. They will enjoy tales of the town’s rich history as a center for sport fishing and beach racing.
Admission and tours are FREE, and are suitable for groups of 20 students or less. Reservations are necessary please call Amy Zengotita at the Museum.
