The people and places that make up the Historical Society of Sarasota County are many and varied.
The Historical Society is part of the community. Here, volunteers trim a Historic Society of Sarasota County holiday tree to be shown at the Powell-Crosley Estate.
Our buildings have creative, adaptive use in the 21st century. For example, the Crocker Memorial Church is the setting, here, for a planning committee meeting. Learn about renting our facilities here.
Our members and guests enjoy our campus at Pioneer Park, which is on 12th Street, between Tamiami Trail and Cocoanut Avenue.
And Sarasota County history is still happening!
The dedication of the Wallenda family historic marker came in January 2010, less than a month before Nik did his famous sky walk from the Ritz-Carleton to a nearby condo tower.
