Sarasota County Historical Resources

Help Historical Resources collect, preserve, and protect our county's history.

If you haven't heard of us before, here's a little bit about our team:

  • Our Preservation Specialist reviews permits and works with local architects and builders to help preserve our county's historic buildings and structures.
  • Our County Archaeologist reviews known and potential archaeological sites to ensure that our pre-historic heritage remains understood and protected.
  • Our Collection Curator works to preserve and maintain our collections of materials which document Sarasota County's history.
  • Our Digital Preservationist works to digitize our collections so that more people can enjoy Sarasota County's history both now and in the future.
