Regarding Cypress House Military Museum. The Palmetto Historical Park is a step back in time, a tiny village of historical buildings from Palmetto’s past.
The park consists of an 1880’s post office, one-room schoolhouse, and a turn-of-the century cottage sited around a brick-paver circle. The back o the Carnegie Library, built in 1914, sits just off the circle, with a military museum and chapel across the way.
