To preserve Osceola County''s rich past while sharing it with residents and visitors.
Programs: We offer a monthly series of history talks, where local authors, historians and special guests speak, with question and answer sessions that follow. We have had such notables as Bob Kealing, author of "Tupperware Unsealed: Brownie Wise, Earl Tupper and the Home Party Pioneers", Edgar J. L'Heureux, speaking about Minnie Moore Willson - author and friend of the Seminole Indian, and Professor Karen Conn, African American Humanities Instructor at Valencia Community College, speaking about the black church and its significance in the African American Community. We also sponsored a panel discussion called African Americans in Early Osceola County, addressing what accomplishments blacks have made to this area. Nancy Dale, author and journalist came to talk about Florida Cow Hunters and then signed her books covering this topic. In September we present: 9/11 A Special Remembrance with various speakers who were involved in this historic event. Every year we anticipate expanding this series, to bring more revelant and interesting authors and speakers, so as to be able to continue educating visitors, as well as our members, to the history of Osceola County and Florida.
