Hello and Happy New Year!

Welcome to another wonderful year, in your Seminole Museum, with great speakers, events and learning more about our past and present community.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank you for continuing to support the Society and your museum. Without your patronage, volunteering and financial support, we could not enjoy the beautiful place we call home for the history of Seminole.

Save The Dates! As you can see, we are able to provide you with a calendar of our Speaker Series, from January to June 2018.

We hope to see you this month and every month for our Speaker Series and remember, the museum is always open Thursdays 10am – 2pm and Saturdays 10am - 2pm.   We are also available to open for groups and guided tours.  Please contact either myself at 727-399-0587 or contact us through our website www.seminolehistoricalsociety.org
