As the Lodge, soon to be the Port St. Lucie History Museum and Education Center, at 2456 Southeast Westmoreland Boulevard, nears completion, the Port St. Lucie Historical Society will be continuing to improve the grounds. In an area between both historic buildings a brick plaza with walkways connecting the buildings will be built. To raise funds for the project and for the operation of the museum, engraved bricks with the name(s) you choose can be purchased and will be installed on the walkway and plaza. You can support this restoration by purchasing one or more of these bricks that will preserve in stone that you are part of our city’s history. They make great gifts for family and friends and can also be a memorial for a loved one who you would like to remember.
Proceeds from the brick sales will go toward the preservation of our history and operations of the museum. Make your mark on history today and order your brick. ORDER YOURS NOW

On Sept. 14, 2020, after years of planning and discussions, the City Council unanimously approved a lease with the Port St. Lucie Historical Society for the two historic houses in The Port District on Westmoreland Boulevard. The Lodge will be used as a museum and the house will eventually be historically restored.
The “Peacock House” was built in 1917 on Okeechobee Road, Fort Pierce, by ancestors of St. Lucie historian Ada Coates Williams. It was given to wealthy rancher O.L. Peacock Jr., who moved it to his property in 1968. The Peacocks were county pioneers who owned much of what is Port St. Lucie today. It was a residence until 2006, when it was abandoned.
Sonny Peacock built the “hunting lodge” in 1952. It was used until 2006 . Developers moved the board and batten buildings to a site near the city’s McCarty Ranch property, which is now a recreational area. The buildings were moved via road from that location in western St. Lucie County to the current site in the spring of 2019.
