A social reformer, he was also a civil rights and women's rights activist as well as a lobbyist. The Elliott preserves local and Florida history and houses the largest collection of signed baseball memorabilia outside of Cooperstown. Sterling Elliott's contribution to the automobile industry is seen in the museum's vintage automobile collection. The museum is also home of the Historical Society of Martin County and its archives, a repository of photos and documents on this area of Florida. The museum is open from 10AM-4PM Monday through Saturday, 1PM-4Pm on Sunday. For more information call 772-225-1961.

Mission

Mission Statement: The Elliott Museum The mission of the Elliott Museum is to interpret and celebrate the genius of innovation, creativity and the historical events in Martin County and the surrounding region all within an environment of learning and discovery.

History

Built in 1961 by Harmon Elliott, the museum stands as a celebration to Harmon's father, Sterling Elliott. Together, father and son held 222 patents. Among the inventions attributed to Sterling are the pneumatic tire, what we now know as rack and pinion steering, the paper cup, addressing machines and the women's bicycle. Today, the Elliott Museum stands on the edge of an expanded and improved celebration of creativity, the preservation of history and the nurturing of the arts. A new $18 million museum is planned with construction beginning in early 2010.
