Inscription.  
This kindergarten building was moved onto the Palmetto Elementary School property in 1936. It would serve for many years as Palmetto’s first public kindergarten. Hazel Lewis was the first teacher to serve there. The building stood on the east side of the 800 Block of 9th Avenue beside the high school gymnasium. In later years the building was used as a dress out room for Palmetto Junior High School girls physical education classes, and then as a teacher’s lounge. When the new school was built, Manatee County gave the building to the Palmetto Historical Commission.

Regarding The Schoolhouse. 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.
