Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek: Revitalized!

1 year ago, you invested in us, well beyond your cash donations. You revitalized our spirits, and helped us move forward. On November 12, 2017 the Osceola County Historical Society woke up after a very successful 26th Annual Pioneer Day sponsored by Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures only to find out the irreplaceable Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek had been vandalized just hours after the event.

2017, A Year in Review

 As we face the New, and exciting Year, let’s take a moment to look back at all that OCHS has accomplished in 2017. The year opened with the winding down of theBuster Kentontemporary exhibit and the introduction of Step in Time: Marching Bands of Osceola County. The exhibit opening featured a fascinating talk from retired band instructor, Larry O’Grady, and a scintillating performance from a portion of the Osceola High School drum core.  OCHS was off to a great start!
