A step back in time: Historical village to host free admission day

Island Reporter, Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village will offer free admission to visitors on June 16.

The offer is available to both residents and visitors on the islands.

The museum tells the story of Sanibel from the Calusa and Spanish eras, to the early pioneer families who settled on the island in the 1800s. It tells of warriors, adventurers, fishermen, farmers and proprietors. The island's way of life is recreated in a village of nine structures that have been relocated from their original sites, restored and preserved. Visitors trace the footsteps of the island's past as they meander along a handicapped-accessible path lined with buildings that represent "old Sanibel," as Sam Bailey said. Tour a home, fishing cottage, post office, schoolhouse, tea room, general store and more.

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.

Free guided tours are at 10:30 a.m., based upon docent availability.

Typically, admission costs $10 for ages 18 and older; children and members are free.
