The Seminole Historical Society and Museum

The Seminole Historical Society was founded to highlight historic artifacts, documents, articles and buildings in Seminole. Its purpose is to ensure that our children and future generations will have a place to go to learn about stories of families from the past who helped create our present, so that we can carve the future.

Members of the Seminole Historical Society can be individuals, families, institutions, or businesses.

Please see our membership page for detailed information.

Seminole exists because of the dreams and actions of those who came before us. Did you know that in early 1860's individual settlers with names like Archer, Campbell, Cobb, Duhme, Grable, Meares, Moody, O'Quinn, Sartorius, Thevenet and Tyler were the pioneer settlers in the Seminole area? They were followed by more pioneers with names such as Johnson, Leach, Longley, Repetto, Thurston, and Whittle.


These early settlers found tall pines suitable for building their homes, ample land to raise their cattle, and plentiful wildlife such as turkey, deer, quail to feed their families.

In 1910, the Seminole area was comprised of just 75 people. The 1920 Census shows names of orange grove owners and farmers living side by side next to each other on one very long road. We know it as Duhme Rd, or 113' Street, or Ridge Road. These families were, O'Quinn, Hinckle, Meares, Johnson, Leach, Brumby, Duhme, and Thevenet.


The Seminole Historical Museum is a gathering place for the dreams of the past and the rich history of our community. The museum is a place for telling stories of those who are no longer here to tell them for themselves.


We welcome you to our website and invite you to visit our beautiful museum to learn about the stories of those "dreamers" from our past who have helped create our present and future.
