History

Ten years of hard work and dreaming on the part of many Goldenrod citizens came to fruition on Friday, August 11, 2000. On that day, the Goldenrod Historical Society accepted the keys to the Goldenrod Fire Station from Orange County as the first step in developing a new Community Center to be called the Goldenrod Station and Museum. Celebration of the Grand Opening of the Museum was held on October 6, 2001. As a community center the renovated Fire Station is also available to the community for business meetings, club meetings and social events. The rentals from these events help defray the cost of maintaining the Station.

The Goldenrod Station houses both the Goldenrod Historical Museum and the Goldenrod Area Chamber of Commerce. Each year Goldenrod celebrates “Tastefully Goldenrod, Food Tasting and Silent Auction” in the spring and the “Goldenrod Festival and Parade” in the fall.
