The month of March is Manatee County Heritage Days...a month long celebration of our history. This March will be our 35th celebration. This includes parades and Open Houses of our Historical Museums, re-enactments at Gamble Mansion, Historical Village and FL Railroad museums..
While checking for coming event dates I found Point Pleasant Walking Tour in Old Downtown Bradenton. The tour starts with Carnegie Library, built in 1918.
Across the street from the library is this wonderful home, also built in 1918. Alan and Hazel Barker lived there until 1947. It is now divided into rental apartments.
Next door was this old beauty
Next to the yellow home, was this bed and breakfast
I followed the sidewalk in the brilliant sunshine, flowers blooming, 72 degrees
and turned the corner and found a 1950 duplex
Next to the duplex was a new home built to look old, but I could tell it was not.
I walked up and down a few blocks... and the next day went back with a friend... I promise not to show you all 400 photos....
