The History of Estero in One Location!

The mission of the Estero Historical Society is to educate and inspire the community
by preserving and sharing the rich history of Estero.

By the Numbers

Over the last 5 years the Society has provided an Estero Area historical experience for over 3000 visitors.

This includes children, summer campers, adults, civic groups, and business groups.

Over the last 5 years Society volunteers put in over 10,000 hours to run the all-volunteer society.
