Historical Society Hosts Annual Pineapple Party

NEWS RELEASE

The Indian River County Historical Society will host their Annual Pineapple Party on Saturday, November 9th at the historic Hallstrom House & Farmstead. The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on the grounds of the old home.  There is no admission fee to the grounds.

The Pineapple Party will feature music by Goin’ Vinyl, and the easy listening music of Gary Lenard Moore. There will also be food, children’s activities, and instruction on pineapple growing and decorative carving. Native seedling plants will be available. The Hallstrom House will be available for self-guided tours with docents on hand to answer questions about the historic property.

The 5-acre Hallstrom House & Farmstead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1999, Miss Ruth Hallstrom bequeathed this property to the Indian River County Historical Society with the purpose of preserving the house, its comprehensive collections and grounds. The Society took possession of the property and buildings including their contents in July 2000. The property was once part of the Hallstrom’s original pineapple plantation established in 1909. The home was constructed in 1919.

For over thirty years, the Indian River County Historical Society has contributed to preserving the historical and environmental resources of Indian River County, the Indian River Lagoon area, and the State of Florida.
