Welcome to The Heritage Center


Due the complete & sudden loss of business because of the Corona Virus outbreak, Vero Heritage, Inc will be temporarily ceasing business operations starting 3/25/2020 until further notice.

Until the situation normalizes, Vero Heritage, Inc will not be accepting any reservations or temporary holds for event rentals.

If you ALREADY have a temporary hold and/or an actual reservation for the Heritage Center, we will be keeping those dates on the future calendar as is.

The Indian River Citrus Museum is also temporarily closed until further notice.

We look forward to hosting your special events & gatherings as soon as we are able. And we will miss you dearly in the interim.

Robyn & Heather will be back in touch with you as soon as possible!

Please be advised that this email address will only be monitored occasionally; and, as the offices are closed, no one is monitoring our phones.

Having said that, the Heritage Center has been a gemstone in Historic Downtown Vero Beach for 85 years and the Indian River Citrus Museum has been in operation since 1994.

With your support, we’ll go on. Thanks to you, we have always been a part of the community. After all, it was the community that saved this building once before!

We thank everyone for your patience and benevolence during this difficult time. As we are dependent on groups, we don’t yet know when we will be back up & running.

In the meantime, please help minimize the impact of COVID-19 on your Heritage Center. Thank you for your support.

Heritage Center, I Gotchya!

With immense appreciation,

Heather Stapleton, Executive Director

Open Tues - Fri, 10 am - 4 pm
Closed Sat-Mon and major holidays
