Citrus County Historical Society

Welcome to the Citrus County Historical Society!

The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum will be closed Friday, December 23 through Monday, December 26 for the holidays, and also Monday, January 2 in celebration of New Year's Day!


However, you still have a chance to see “The Heart of Quilting – an interactive exhibit” at the museum from December 26th – 30th Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The display includes over 100 quilts that are family treasurers and quilts that are historically important to Citrus County. One of these “The Centennial Quilt,” was made in 1987, celebrating the 100th year since founding of the county, by a group of ladies who then became Cracker Quilters Guild of Citrus County. The ladies of Cracker Quilters have been generous contributors to this exhibit.

The exhibit is presented by the Citrus Friendship Quilters Guild.
