WELCOME TO

Historic Spanish Point

[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”0″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”#cbaa5c” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”50px” alignment=”left” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]At Historic Spanish Point, you can explore 30 incredibly beautiful acres of history, natural splendor, and archaeological mystery. At this irreplaceable outdoor museum on Little Sarasota Bay in Osprey, Florida, you’ll find ways to enjoy your regular afternoons and weekends on the paths and porches of the campus, you’ll see scheduled concerts and lectures, and. if you’d like, you’ll attend meetings, luncheons and festivals throughout the year.

Many visitors at Historic Spanish Point love to experience the gardens throughout the grounds. Mrs. Potter Palmer’s Jungle Walk, the beautiful and lush Sunken Garden, and the Butterfly Garden, which is one of the largest on the Gulf Coast, are all very popular attractions.

At Historic Spanish Point, you’ll see how Florida’s intrepid pioneer homesteaders built and ran Sarasota’s first produce packing house, you will encounter a charming chapel, pioneer cemetery, and the beautifully preserved Guptill House, which was built in 1901.

Historic Spanish Point provides an opportunity to learn about the prehistory of Southwest Florida. “A Window to the Past,” is the only archaeological exhibition in the United States that is built inside of an ancient shell mound.

At Guptill Boat Yard, visitors can enjoy maritime tales or take a kayak or paddleboard out and explore both  the mangroves and the secluded waters of Little Sarasota Bay.

It’s always fun to bring your dogs with you when you come to Historic Spanish Point. The 30 acres of shaded walkways and trails make it a beautiful place to spend time with your favorite pup.

Historic Spanish Point is a true  Old Florida oasis. It is an enjoyable and fun place that is absolutely worth preserving for our community and for future generations.  Come and explore the beauty and mystery of Historic Spanish Point, which is open daily! You’ll have a great time!
