  • The house which is open for limited hours was made from Yellow Pine and I believe was originally located along the Indian River a little further North, but it was moved to the current location when the family that owned it donated it to the Historical Society

      In Grant, FL on US Highway 1, there is a little historical site that has a picnic and fishing area called Fisherman’s Landing. First and foremost, it’s the site of the Grant Historical house which is a house from the early 1900’s that was donated to the Grant Historical Society. The house which is open for limited hours was made from Yellow Pine and I believe was originally located along the Indian River a little further North, but it was moved to the current location when the family that owned it donated it to the Historical Society. It’s nice

      to look through, although not very big, but it reminds you of a simpler time and place of days gone by. Outside the house, there is a boardwalk and pier that go along and out into the Indian River. This makes for a nice place for people to go for a walk, have a picnic or fish from the pier.

      They’ve got several picnic tables and benches as well as a swing that you can sit in overlooking the river. I go there quite often to simply sit and listen to music in my car while overlooking the river ...


      • or sometimes I pick up a coffee and sit at one of the picnic tables and read the paper. It’s just a nice reprieve from the busy world and it’s always so quiet and peaceful there. You often see Egrets and Cranes walking along the river’s edge. I usually try to keep my camera handy when I go there because you never know what you might find to make a good subject for a picture. My Dad loves to come there to drop a line in the water after dinner at night. He’s caught a few fish
        there, but mostly he enjoys just talking to whoever else is out on the dock fishing that night.

        There are restrooms there and a couple of barbecue sites so it really makes for a nice place to have a picnic or even to have a family event. Boaters on the Indian River are allowed to pull alongside the dock area and anchor to come in and use the BBQ’s and restrooms.

        They sometimes organize Flea Markets, rummage sales and Fish Frys there on a Saturday now and then, but for the most part, it’s open to the public to use whenever they wish.
