The Town of St. Lucie Village was incorporated in 1961 when threatened with Industry coming in to our area. May 6, 1961, 125 people gathered to resist this invasion, the meeting were chaired by Dr. Richard Sinnott. Voting to incorporation were 111 people, against 13, the Village became a legal entity.
Today approximate 615 people live in the Village, among them are the Sinnott family and many of the original families are raising their families in the Village.
We are a Historic area with 34 historic homes, including the oldest house in St. Lucie County.
The Village is an independent town with our own Mayor, Aldermen, Clerk, Attorney, Building Official and Marshal. The Board meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Town Hall on Old Dixie Highway.
We want to keep the Village as much as it is for all to see, a history book of St. Lucie County.
