Osceola History

About This Project

Do you love Osceola County and its rich history? Us, too! We are creating an invaluable collection of digitized photographs chronicling the county's history, growth, and change through 1975. This collection will provide you the opportunity to explore the history of the county and its people, and connect the community to its past.

We need your help! We are asking you to pull out your albums and boxes from the attic to be part of our Local History Collection. Scan your photos, then submit them here. Photo submissions can represent local agriculture, government, industry, transportation, education, community arts, events (i.e. rodeo), construction/development, clubs, and society organizations (i.e. Amvets, DAR, Boys/Girl Scouts, etc.). We also welcome photographs of our local veterans (through the Gulf War) to be a part of our special collection honoring their bravery and sacrifice.
