A Portrait of Largo, Florida”

Don’t miss an opportunity to own this wonderful hard-cover book. It’s destined to become a treasure for generations.

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.
