Our Chapter is excited the northbound historic Narcoossee sign has now been installed on Narcoossee Road (near Chisholm Park turnoff). The winning design for the sign, submitted by Osceola County resident, Darlene Waniel, reflects so many cool things about our local history – Narcoossee’s founding date of 1884; a “Little Black Bear” to reflect the English translation of the Native American word “Narcoossee”; East Lake Tohopekliga; our steamboat history (wharf pilings and rope lines); the Sugar Belt Railway (railroad ties); and construction using native woods like cypress and mahogany. We look forward to the southbound sign installation (near the Narcoossee schools) to be completed in early 2017.
