The Sanibel Historical Village re-opens Oct. 17, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We’re planning exciting programs this season, including a boat trip to historic Useppa and four Twilight Talks,” said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “Our annual gala fundraiser is scheduled for Feb. 19. Watch the local newspapers for specifics. We look forward to seeing old friends as well as welcoming return guests.”

New volunteers are always needed at the village. Training begins Nov. 6 and 13. Interested people are encouraged to call (239) 472-4648.

“There are many different things for volunteers to do, so anyone can find a comfortable spot among our village family,” Alfino said.

Full guided tours take place at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no additional charge, depending on docent availability. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to the buildings. Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free.
