St. Cloud Heritage Museum • St. Cloud, Florida

The mission of the St. Cloud Heritage Museum is to preserve historic records and

artifacts of organizations and individuals involved in the history of St. Cloud and to honor

their contributions by displaying that information in the museum for access by the public.

"In the heart of Central Florida lies St. Cloud, an amiable city with a bright future and a colorful past. Located in Osceola County, only a short distance from the Sunshine State's most-visited tourist attractions, the city has benefited greatly from its unique locale.

But long before the city attracted sightseers, it was a booming sugar exporter and a haven for retired Civil War veterans. The town, named for a Paris suburb, was incorporated in 1911 as a "soldier's colony" and was touted for its "health, climate, and productiveness of the soil."

Today, the St. Cloud celebrates its diverse population, ideal location, and agricultural history. Plan a visit to the museum to learn more about the town's rich history.
