Lady Lake Historical Society Museum

WELCOME

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Lady Lake Historical Society Museum, the institution devoted to the history and culture of the Town of Lady Lake. During a visit to our museum, you will gain new insights into this most beloved Town, where its heritage of diversity and perpetual transformation is on display.

The Lady Lake Historical Society was founded in 1992.  The young institution began collecting artifacts, furniture, decorative arts, photographs and more, and soon exceeded the space of the Log Cabin, its first location (shared with multiple organizations), now the official home of the Lady Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.  The original Old Depot, used as Lady Lake’s first public library, became available for use by the museum in 2000.

During the summer of 2014, the Society undertook its first thorough renovation of its display areas. We have completely changed the interior of the museum to create an environment where visitors can step into the past to learn about the history of Lady Lake. Our collections serve as a resource for exhibitions ranging from Early History, to Founding Families, to the Military, to Agriculture, to Early Schools, to Early Churches, to the Beginning of the Villages, and more!

MISSION

The mission of the Lady Lake Historical Society is to identify, collect, and exhibit the ideas, arts, and artifacts of Lady Lake’s heritage in order to preserve the past for future generations.

SUPPORT FOR OUR DISPLAYS

We are seeking some specific artifacts for our exhibit as either loans or donations.  We need an antique cash register for our Country Store display and additional photographs of early Lady Lake residents in the late 1800s and early 1900s.   Please call if you have these items or other historic items of Lady Lake to share in the museum.  Copies of photographs or glass negatives will work well.

Also, we are requesting cash donations from residents and businesses in and near Lady Lake to help fund the renovation, changing displays, and additions to our museum.   Names of our supporters will have a prominent place on a display board in the museum, where they will be viewed by our visitors.

Welcome All!
