Museums are places with all sorts of stories, and in Downtown Homestead, the Historic Town Hall Museum has many of its own to tell.
In what was once Homestead’s very first town hall, the museum catalogs the city’s history through pictures, books, artifacts and even a nearly 100-year-old fire truck.
Jeff Blakley, a historian who works with the museum, says it’s trying to bridge a gap in South Florida history.
“I like to say that the history of South Florida is history of Miami and the history of the keys and there’s nothing in between. We’re trying to fill that hole in between.”
In a city that is ever-changing, the Historic Town Hall Museum keeps the past alive for anyone who walks through its doors.
