"Museums are managers of consciousness. They give us an interpretation of history, of how to view the world and locate ourselves in it." ~ Hans Haacke

Bruce and I took some time to pop into the Stuart Heritage Museum the other day. Located right in downtown Stuart, it looks deceptively small from the outside. The interior consists of several rooms, each dedicated to various historical aspects of the town that is now our second home.








How is this for a Senior Class Trip? The Stuart Class of 1954 went to Havana, Cuba!

The distance between Stuart and Havana is approximately 308 miles.

One section is devoted to information on the Seminole Native Americans.



A very pleasant museum with a friendly volunteer staff. There is no admission fee either! Swing in if you are near by!

  1. I love these kinds of things. One of my pleasures in Budapest is trying to figure out who lived where and who built what.
