Heritage Village Happenings - November 2010

Heritage Village Happenings…

In 1982, 26 years ago, my brother and his wife (Huey and Kathy Tolle) took on their first challenge at renovating a Historic Home. This late 1800 treasure was our ancestor’s home place. My grandmother (Edna Eubanks Barco) was born in the front bedroom of this house.  Also the first automobile, in Crystal River, was owned by our great grandfather that lived there. The House was best known to be where local children came for Piano lessons from Mrs. Ada B Edwards (our Aunt B).  In our eyes, this home place was an important piece of history to preserve.  After renovations took place, a Country Gift Shop was born in the Heritage House in 1983. This was the beginnings of “The Shoppes of Heritage Village”.  Twenty-seven years later, our family is at it again with a Home Décor and gift Shoppe in the Heritage House.  If you would like to read more about the different businesses in the Heritage House go to and click on “My Heritage…from the Heart” November story.
