​​​​Community Pavilion & Event Venue

​​Located in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, Point Washington Preserve offers a unique setting for weddings, rehearsal dinners, family reunions, corporate gatherings or any event during any season.

Point Washington Preserve sits on ten acres of land, surrounded by State Forest.

 Point Washington Preserve provides a private and serene setting for any occasion.  


The pavilion/cottage complex at Point Washington Preserve ("PWP")  not only hosts weddings and events, but is truly a dual purpose event venue. Point Washington Preserve also hosts science/engineering retreats as well.

South Walton's Southern Hybrid Homes and its nonprofit association, the Good Samaritan Institute ("GSI"), have proudly supported local education programs for the last 15 years. Specifically, programs that inspire young minds to consider career paths in science and engineering. "Scientisst and engineers create the real wealth for our society" according to Doug Liles, GSI Director and Southern Hybrid Homes builder.

The Santa Rosa Project ("SRP") is one such program. The program will host top scientists and engineers from all over the world to participate in conferences to determine best practices for nine separate categories, including biology, cancer, chemistry, computer science, engineering, imaging, mathematics, microbiology and nanotechnology. These consensus based practices will be published on GSI's affiliate website bestinscience.com. SRP scientists and engineers will also have the opportunity to inspire young minds to consider similar career paths, via the virtual mentor program. It has been said, "give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime". So we might modify this saying to "give a child science and engineering and he will benefit in the present, but teach a child science and engineering and he and all of society will benefit in the future".
