THE NARCOOSSEE AREA CHAPTER OF THE OSCEOLA
COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

HAVE YOU SEEN THE NARCOOSSEE HISTORIC SIGNS?

 

 
The northbound & southbound signs have been installed and landscaping was also added.  The design and materials of the sign reflects the unique history of Narcoossee and incorporated key historical elements including:
 

  • Founding date of 1884
  • "Little Black Bear" depiction of Native American Word "Narcoossee" (English translation)
  • East Lake Tohopekaliga
  • Steamboat history (wharf piling and rope lines)
  • Sugar Belt Railway (railroad ties)
  • Constructive from native woods:  cypress and mahogany

 
 
 
 

THE NARCOOSSEE HISTORIC SIGN CONTEST WINNER!

 
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.   We look forward to the southbound sign installation (near the Narcoossee schools) to be completed in early 2017.
