We invite you to explore Central Florida’s past by searching and browsing over 80,000 images of historic materials. Diaries and letters describe the region and how people survived day-by-day in this extreme and rugged environment. Maps, photographs, and postcards illustrate how the region looked in the early years and how it changed over time.
Students of all ages can learn about Central Florida’s history by reading our Florida Stories, subject specific stories created using materials from the collection. Teachers can access ready-made classroom activities, lesson plans, and additional resources.
