To identify, acquire, preserve, interpret, exhibit, and provide access to materials pertaining primarily to the rich history of Homestead, Florida, the surrounding region, its peoples, and its institutions for the education and enjoyment of past and future generations.
Built in 1917, the Homestead town Hall was the first municipal building in the town of Homestead. In 1975 after the city government moved to its present location, the Town Hall remained functional for various municipal purposes until 1988. After much discussion at the council level, a decision was made to demolish the building and pave the area as a parking lot. Homestead preservationists rallied to the defense of this historic building and matched a State of Florida grant to restore and preserve this important part of Homestead's history. Open five afternoons a week, there is no charge for the public to enjoy the exhibits and participate in various community outreach programs.
