The land for Field Manor was homesteaded beginning in 1867, and the house began construction in 1880. It was the first house to be built on Merritt Island. We now have 45 acres of working citrus grove and sit on about 320 ft of riverfront shoreline. We have cultivated a variety of fruits as well as bees and oysters. The house became a Museum in 2013, when the last living Field descendant established Field Manor Foundation as part of her estate. We are now open for historic tours, educational programs, and are a venue for weddings and other events!
We are very excited to be able to welcome visitors back into the museum! We have new cleaning measures in place, staff will be wearing masks, visitors to the museum will be required to wear a mask or cloth face covering, and we are requiring appointments to ensure that groups do not come into contact with each other. If you are interested in touring the Field Manor museum please call us to schedule your appointment at 321-848-0365. Planning to stop by and just now realizing you need an appointment? If the calendar is open, please feel free to give us a call and we’ll do our best to get your tour set up! We are still hosting virtual events on our Facebook page every Wednesday at 2:30P. Be sure to check those out; you may even learn something new!
