Marco Island Historical Society
The mission of the Marco Island Historical Society (MIHS) is to preserve and share the history and heritage of Marco Island and the surrounding communities. The Society, founded in 1994, is dedicated to the discovery, research, acquisition, and preservation of the multi-faced history of Marco Island, the neighboring islands, and communities. The MIHS uses its museum complex (completed in 2010) to help fulfill its goal of educating and informing residents and visitors of our rich cultural heritage. The MIHS seeks mot merely to preserve the remaining pieces of Marco's past, but to educate the public about the area's complex history so that residents and visitors will be inspired to preserve their cultural resources whether on Marco or in their own hometowns.
