Historic Anna Maria City Tour Now Available (And It's Free!)
The Historic Anna Maria City Tour brochure is now available in the Anna Maria Island Historical Society Museum's gift shop.
The brochure guides tour-takers from the Rod & Reel Pier to the Sandbar Restaurant, stopping at historical sites along the way, such as the City Pier, Roser Cottage, and the Historic Green Village. Tour-takers learn about the early development of Anna Maria City from the late 1800s to the mid-1900s.
Anna Maria City has many unique historical sites that could not be included in the tour brochure. If you would like to learn more about Anna Maria City, a printer-friendly pdf of these sites can be downloaded from the "About Us" page of the website (scroll down to the "Resources" section).
The "Historic Anna Maria City Tour Additional Sites" document covers a greater distance, from the Waterfront Restaurant on South Bay Blvd. out to Castle Cottage on Beach Ave. It tells the story of iconic sites such as Ginny and Jane E's at the Old IGA and the Sign of the Mermaid.
Thank you to our sponsors for making this tour possible: The Historic Green Village, Food and Wine on Pine, the Sandbar, Roser Community Church, the City Pier, Anna Maria General Store and Deli, and Sato Real Estate Inc.
Thank you also to Deb Bell of Bell Graphics for designing the brochure and summer intern Kathryn Rohlwing for developing the content.
