The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce recognized the grand re-opening of the Wakulla County Historical Society Museum and Archives on Friday, July 31 with a ribbon cutting. The Historical Society continued the celebration during an open house on Saturday, August 1. The Museum was closed during May and June for renovations to bring the front entrance and restroom into ADA compliance. "This celebration is the culmination of a 20 year vision being fulfilled and we appreciate the Chamber's support," said President Cathy Frank.

Brick Paver Fundraiser

Wakulla County Historical Society presents our "Memorial Brick Pavers Fundraiser." Here’s a great way to honor or memorialize that someone special in your life, and also help the Wakulla County Historical Society raise funds. Please help us with our mission of preserving and documenting Wakulla County history at the Wakulla County Museum and Archives.

Buy a paver brick with up to three lines of copy for installation in front of the Museum building. This will be a prime location for our many visitors to see your tribute. These 4” X 8” paver bricks are of the highest quality and laser engraved to last a lifetime.

Donation of $100.00 per brick

Paver donations are tax deductible under the Society's 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit organization.

Please call the Museum at 850-926-1110 or email 24research@gmail.com with any questions and we will respond promptly.

Next Historical Society Meeting

We don't want to miss a chance of getting in touch with people who may have experienced life, stories, relatives, pictures, activities in Newport. We especially want to hear from those who may remember the community in pre- or post-WWII days. Any information that helps to fill in so much of the emptiness that is in this little community today will be greatly appreciated. News clippings, photographs, magazine articles that can be photocopied will help us pull together a great program for Tuesday evening, September 8. Proprietress Dorothy White is graciously hosting this meeting at her establishment Ouzts Too, 7968 Coastal Highway at the Bridge, in Newport, http://ouztstoo.com. She and her staff will be there at 5:00 ready to serve us. Betty Green is hoping to see a great program come together about this beautiful and historically important part of Wakulla County. Please call or write: Betty Green, 926-7405 or 766-9305...email bgreen@nettally.com. Thanks for any help we receive!!!

We look forward to seeing you there.
