A class of fourth graders at our Brevard Museum of History and Natural Science stares up in wonder at the towering skeleton of a Giant Ground Sloth.

A teenage girl at the Rossetter House Museum is inspired by the story of Carrie Rossetter, who became a successful businesswoman in 1921; just months after women received the right to vote.

An eager graduate student is thrilled to find a one-of-a-kind primary source document in the archive at our Library of Florida History.

A group of seniors gather at the FHS Headquarters to discuss the latest FHS Press book over coffee and donuts.

Hundreds of scholars, students, and history enthusiasts gather every year in a different Florida town for the FHS Annual Meeting & Symposium to experience presentations on Florida history topics, tours of historic sites, an awards luncheon, a banquet, a picnic, and much more.
