The Mount Dora History Museum is the signature project of the Mount Dora Historical Society. The museum is housed in the first fire station and city jail which was opened in 1923. The exhibits highlight activities in Mount Dora from the 1880s to the 1930s. THE MUSEUM WILL BE CLOSED FROM AUGUST 19 to AUGUST 31. Come visit the newly-renovated museum on September 1!
The Historical Society offers speakers and events throughout the year to highligh the history of our area and enhance people's awareness of our region.
The Society was also involved in the restoration of the historic Mount Carmel - Simpson Cemetary located south of St. Patrick's Catholic Church on Highland Avenue and the relocation of the Simpson farmhouse on Donnelly.
