The Seminole Historical Society was founded to highlight historic artifacts, documents, articles and buildings in Seminole. Its purpose is to ensure that our children and future generations will have a place to go to learn about stories of families from the past who helped create our present, so that we can carve the future.
Early settlers of the Pinellas community of Seminole found tall pines suitable for building their homes, ample land to raise their cattle, and plentiful wildlife such as turkey, deer, quail to feed their families. In 1910, the Seminole area was comprised of just 75 people. The 1920 Census shows names of orange grove owners and farmers living side by side next to each other on one very long road. We know it as Duhme Rd, or 113th Street, or Ridge Road. The Seminole Historical Museum is a gathering place for the dreams of the past and the rich history of the community. It is is a place for telling stories of those who are no longer here to tell them for themselves.
The Seminole Historical Society invites you to participate in efforts to preserve Florida history. They encourage donations of historical documents, photographs and artifacts to the museum.
