Time travel: Connect to the past and the future. Heritage is on-going so we attempt to collect stories about past AND current residents -- memories and memorabilia. We look for unique ways to share the stories through traveling exhibits, performers, media tours etc. We are working to make our springfield stories, archives, and exhibits available online in a Virtual Museum.

The Florida Heritage Collection

The Florida Heritage Collection is an ongoing cooperative project of the State University System (SUS) of Florida to digitize and provide online access to materials broadly representing Florida’s history, culture, arts, literature, sciences and social sciences. Thematic areas in this growing collection include Native American and minority populations, exploration and development, tourism, the natural environment, and regional interests.

Materials are taken from archives, special collections, and libraries of the ten state universities which make up the SUS. These materials represent only a small part of the wealth of historical and archival treasures held by the SUS libraries. Users should note the source of materials they use on this site and should contact the holding libraries or archives directly for more information.

Museum of Florida History

As the repository for the state's historical artifacts, the Museum maintains permanent collections of nearly 44,000 items that document the daily lives of Florida's varied populations. The Museum also promotes heritage awareness statewide through traveling exhibits, publications, outreach activities, and technical and financial support to other institutions.

Florida Photographic Collection
The Florida Photographic Collection is a nationally recognized component of the State Archives of Florida and contains more than 850,000 photographs, and approximately 2,500 movies and video tapes. Over 100,000 of the photographs have been scanned and placed on this website. The collection spans a wide range of visual images from copies of mid 15th Century maps to current photographs. Most of the holdings in the collection have been obtained singly or in small groups. Together, they form the most complete portrait of Florida available--one that draws its strength from family pictures, the homes of Floridians, their work, and their pastimes.
