The Church of St. Luke and St. Peter

Narcoossee, Florida was established in 1884, and comprised of English immigrants. By 1887, the settlers of Narcoossee began to meet for worship services. Depending on the weather, some of the meeting would be held outdoors, otherwise if there was a chance of rain the meeting would be relocated in someone’s home. Eventually there was talk of building an Episcopal church and fundraising efforts began. The majority of the money was raised locally and some of the funds came from England for the completion of the church in 1897.

Cadman Family Christmas: A Community Affair

The Cadmans were host to many celebrations and social events throughout the late 19th and early 20th century. According to the Cadman Scrapbook, the family organized and presented many events throughout the year, including horse races, tennis tournaments, fund raisers and even hosted the Episcopal Bishop’s luncheon on his first visit to Narcoossee. While each event was extensively covered by the region’s newspapers, it is the Christmas celebration of 1889 that has captured our imaginations here at the Osceola County Historical Society.

Seminole Settlement

The tie between Osceola County and the Seminole Indians goes deeper than our county merely being named for Seminole Indian Chief, Osceola. Billy Bowlegs III, his sister Lucy Pearce, Martha and Tim Tiger and others were frequent visitors to Kissimmee. We are reminded of the connection when we see and hear the names of extinct communities in Osceola County or current cities, towns; lakes and waterways.
