Estero Historical society
The Society has a number of annual and ongoing traditions we celebrate with area residents. These events form a sense of community and connect our history with today.
Every year, usually in March, EHS hosts a grand Luncheon, and each year has a distinctive theme. Residents go to great lengths, wearing theme-matching hats and outfits. It’s a wonderful time and a large fund-raiser for the organization.
Monthly member meetings feature speakers including authors, archeologists, local community leaders and more. Each December, a special holiday event is celebrated.
Each April, the Cottage hosts a Pioneer Picnic, where residents and descendants of Estero pioneers gather in a ‘family-reunion’.
Mimi’s Tea Room
During season, monthly traditional teas are held in the Cottage. Limited to a cozy dozen attendees, these events book quickly.
Mango Chutney Canning
A local mango chutney recipe is used to make home-made jars of chutney in the Spring. Sales benefit EHS.
Reading of the Delcaration of Independence
On July 4th, residents gather for a reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Cottage.
Area students are invited each year to participate in an essay contest on a given historical theme. Winners are celebrated at an award ceremony.
