History

Our Museum's Grand Opening was on September 18th, 2011 and we have now modified several areas in the museum since the opening, so be sure and stop by to see the "Changes".

Artifacts Collections

The Corsiglia Collection

Local Ocala Native American Projectile Points and Pottery: This collection was found about 0.70 miles southwest of this museum along the then dirt roads from 1960 thru 1963 by local resident Robin Corsiglia. He has loaned them to the museum for all to see & enjoy. These artifacts were found on the surface of the dirt roads after the roads were graded and then aftera hard rain. The approximate location of most of these artifacts is shown on the satellite view map. Mr. Corsiglia helped rebuild this museum back in 2011 and has helped find many of the artifacts displayed throughout this museum.
