Marco Island Historical Society
The Marco Island Historical society, founded in 1994, investigates and preserves the islands history for the public. The society offers tours and lectures by qualified speakers. A museum exhibit is housed in the society's headquarters; they also have a second museum at 168 Palm Drive. The society constantly works to preserve the islands culture with efforts such as that to bring the "Key Marco Cat", a Calusa artifact discovered in 1896 and Marco Islands most treasured historical possession, to the Collier County Museum by the Marco Island from the Smithsonian where it is currently housed.
The Marco Island Historical Museum takes you to an authentic Calusa Indian Village with a lagoon. A gigantic sculpture of the Key Marco Cat stands in front. It's bronze with gold eyes.
The very first exhibit is "Florida Cowboys, Keepers of the Last Frontier." You can get in any afternoon, after June 21st, 2010.
