The mission of The Grove Museum is to preserve and interpret the Call-Collins House, its historical collections, and its surrounding acreage, in order to engage the public in dialogue about civil rights and American history.
Built by enslaved craftspeople, the ca. 1840 Call-Collins House at The Grove is one of the best preserved antebellum residences in Florida. Home to several generations of the Call and Collins families, most recently LeRoy and Mary Call Collins, the site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The house and 10.5-acre grounds underwent an award-winning rehabilitation under the leadership of the Florida Department of State and opened to the public in 2017 as The Grove Museum.
Parking for museum is located at 902 N. Monroe St., Tallahassee, Florida 32303. Admission to the museum is FREE.
