Frostproof Historical Museum
The Frostproof Historical Museum is another example of a former municipal building dedicated to preserving the area's past.
The museum occupies a structure built in 1922 as the first public library in town. The Frostproof Historical Society began using the site as a museum after the opening of the Latt Maxcy Memorial Library in 1978.
The museum collects photographs, maps, newspapers, books and other records in its genealogical section. Videotapes and audiotapes also contribute to an understanding of the city's founding families. Those early residents are also the subject of books in the museum.
The Frostproof Historical Museum is located at 210 S. Scenic Highway.
The museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturdays from June through September and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from October through May.
Membership dues are $10 a year or $100 for a lifetime membership.
