Yesteryear Village in West Palm depicts Old Florida

Yesteryear Village in West Palm offers an interactive historical park with an Old Florida vibe.

Original and replicated structures at the attraction include a school, shops, and a farm. The historical attraction also includes houses and representatives playing the part of local residents from the era. 

Yesteryear Village usually is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and it’s wise to phone to verify the attraction is open when you are interested in going.

Entry is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $7 for ages 5-11, and free for younger kids.  Discounts are occasionally offered, including via a library program.

“This is a unique opportunity to chat with the town residents, and listen as they tell you what their daily life was really like prior to 1940,” the Yesteryear Village information states. “A time when schools were located in one small building and houses did not have running water. ”
