History is Happening in Narcoossee!

Lots of cool things are going on to preserve and share our rich history ...

  • Interior Restoration Complete - We are excited to report the interior restoration of the historic Narcoossee Schoolhouse is now complete.  What a difference to see the beautiful original floor revived and replica period windows & hardware back in place – you can feel the 1880s coming alive as you enter the building.  The experience is dramatically different from what we first encountered when we took over stewardship of the building with its linoleum floor, fluorescent lights, and modern fixtures and additions back in 2013.  Uncovering the past has and continues to be a grand adventure for our dedicated volunteers.

 

  • What’s Next for the Historic Schoolhouse?  Our Furnishings Committee has prepared a detailed list of the items needed to outfit the schoolhouse as it would have been in the late 1880s.  Now the search is on to acquire this inventory – if you have any item you believe might be applicable to a circa 1886 Florida schoolhouse you would like to donate or loan to our building, please contact us at info@narcoosseehistory.org

 

  • Brick Donors:  We are grateful for the many supporters who have helped our restoration efforts by the purchase of an engraved brick(s).  Our goal is to have this brick display installed on the historic schoolhouse grounds by the Spring of 2018 and we will notify all donors when this is complete and ready for viewing!

 

  • Next Event – Community BBQ August 19th from 11AM – 3PM – Come by the schoolhouse and pick-up a convenient takeout meal(s) or stay and “dine-in” and visit with neighbors and history buffs as we continue our fundraising efforts.  Only $8 per person for a meal with two sides plus delicious homemade baked goods for sale too!
