Long famous for its Key Marco Cat - one of the most remarkable and influential discoveries in North American archaeology- the new Marco Island Historical Museum will explore Southwest Florida's Calusa Indians and bring this vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an exciting recreated village scene. Temporary and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation.

The Marco Island Historical Society is a non-profit 501c3 organization founded in 1994. We are dedicated to discovery, research, acquisition and preservation of the multi-faceted history of the Marco Island- Goodland region and to educating and informing the community and visitors of our dynamic heritage.
