Osceola County Historical Society

The Osceola County Historical Society is a 501c3 that was founded on October 29, 1949 by volunteers Charles and Twylah Hartley and Alma Hetherington looking to properly preserve artifacts and publish articles that would ensure Osceola County’s heritage lived on for years to come. Today, OCHS has 4 locations; The Welcome Center, Pioneer Village, Research Center, and Shingle Creek.

The Osceola County Historical Society collects and preserves the county’s history, and provides educational, research and recreational opportunities to foster an understanding an enjoyment of the area’s cultural and natural heritage through museum displays, demonstrations, interpretive programs, and special events for residents and visitors.
