Welcome to the Largo Area Historical Society website. We thank you for visiting us and trust your
stay will be both pleasant and educational.
Chartered under Florida laws on October 17, 1973, the Largo Area Historical Society is a
non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster the appreciation and understanding of Largo’s
rich historical heritage by providing education, research, and preservation of historically significant places, documents and items.
The Society meets on the second Monday of each month* at the historic Feed Store located at 295
Central Park Drive behind the Largo Cultural Center. A pot-luck supper begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by guest speakers and a business meeting. We extend a warm invitation for all to join us for some old-fashioned fellowship.
On the first Saturday of each month,* the Society opens the Feed Store to the general public from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m. We invite you to view our displays of historical photos and memorabilia. Come sit a spell in our old-fashioned rockers and chat with our historians about Largo’s past.
