Polk Historical Association adds online features
WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – The Polk County Historical Association’s (PCHA) Web site, www.polkcountyhistory.org, has new features to support the non-profit group’s efforts at historic preservation. The newly refreshed site is the first step in the PCHA’s plans to distribute the wealth of information gathered over the years, including newsletters dating back to 1974.
The PCHA is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving historic documents and photographs, as well as facilitating the Oral History Project. The Oral History Project is a series of interviews with Polk County “pioneers,” individuals who have reached age 79 and have lived at least 50 years in Polk County. The goal is to upload the videotaped interviews for display through a portal on the Web site.
“Our old site required a programmer to update,” said David Brewer, president of the PCHA’s board of directors. “We have a great deal of information to share; the new site gives us the outlet, now we just need a few more volunteers to help with the project.” Interested volunteers can contact the Board of Directors via the Web site.
