Help Save the Historic Green Street Church Museum!

The Lemon Bay Historical Society purchased this historic building in May, 1988. However the land lease was not renewed. In order to save this iconic community building, the Historical Society elected to move it to a "forever home." We sincerely thank all who contributed to this effort. We still have bills to pay as the move cost much more than expected. READ MORE

WHO WE ARE

The Society grew out of a Pioneer Days Celebration on September 4, 1983 honoring Englewood’s first newspaper editor, Josephine Cortes, author of History of Englewood and Pioneer Days founder. In May, 1984 an organizational meeting was held, and by the next Pioneer Days celebration on September 2, 1984, the Society had organized a mullet roast for 150 people! The mullet was freshly caught by members of the Platt family and Bill Davis and Bob Cashatt foraged some swamp cabbage, which was cooked using Eula Davis’ (Bill’s mother) famous recipe. In 1985, the Lemon Bay Historical Society was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization whose mission was “for the specific purposes of perpetuating the legacy of the past [and] honoring the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.” Bob Cashatt, also an artist, designed the logo for the Society.
