ST. LUCIE VILLAGE

Old Florida Architecture & Indian River Lagoon Panoramas

History

Just north of Fort Pierce, hidden between North U.S. 1 and the Indian River Lagoon is a tiny, 490-acre village listed as “The St. Lucie Village Historic District” on the National Register of Historic Places.

It is a rare place where generations after generations of families reside. Take a short trip north on Indian River Drive and you’ll find the village between 2505 and 3305 N. Indian River Drive. Find the stone monument at 3015 North Indian River Drive where Fort Capron existed in the 1850s during the third Seminole Indian War.

Be sure to see the 114-year-old St. Lucie Club, now an apartment residence, with its long porches and many windows. The three-story white building houses 8 apartments. It was originally a retreat for eight Pennsylvania Republicans and was known as “the Southern White House.” The building is on the National Register for Historic Homes. And above all, enjoy the all of the old Florida residential architecture and breathtaking views of the Indian River Lagoon.
