Historic Spanish Point was deeded to Gulf Coast Heritage Association, Inc. by the Palmer family in 1980. As part of its mission, GCHA identified key visions to which it is committed, foremost of which, is the preservation of Historic Spanish Point, a 30-acre environmental, archaeological, and historic site. When acquired, the buildings were in serious need of restoration and the historic gardens were overgrown. The 1980 Master Plan, produced by a team of restoration architects, historians, archaeologists, and museum professionals, outlined a plan to rehabilitate the 30-acre parcel for a museum and since then over $4 million has been raised for restorations, reconstructions, and interpretations of buildings, gardens, and archaeological features. Today, Historic Spanish Point is operated by a professional staff of nine, support staff of four, and over 200 volunteers. The museum is open to the public seven days a week and serves over 28,000 visitors annually.
The mission of Historic Spanish Point is to connect people of today with 5,000 years of human history in southwest coastal Florida by collecting, preserving and interpreting the objects and traditions significant to the region's past.
