The Brooksville Historical 
Society Museum Building has MOVED! 

(not too far, same address, better foundation!)

A Building on the Move

The society's museum of historical artifacts, which had been housed in a converted boathouse on temporary piers was moved onto a permanent foundation this Spring. The collection includes
 marine artifacts, farming and blacksmith tools, kitchen utensils and other household items.

Genealogical information including journals, bound family histories, photographs and compilations 
by researchers of cemeteries and vital records are on site and the expanded lower level space allows for safer archival storage.


The museum facilities include the hearse house and gardens, as well as a farmhouse currently under restoration.
