Walk up and down the streets of St. Cloud, Florida and you will pass many homes dating to 1910. But if you venture to Lakeshore Blvd. a lovely two-story home dating to 1887 greets you. Learn more about the house that stood "In the Shade of the Old Oak Tree" in this month's History Blog. #lovehistory #loveFL #StCloud #OsceolaCounty #HistoryisHappening

The game Hopscotch was originally expanded more than 100 feet and was used by the Roman foot soldiers. The soldiers would run the course as a military drill, while wearing full armor and field packs, the game would help improve footwork. #TotallyTots! #OsceolaCounty #HistoryisHappening #Hopscotch #Games #SummerActivities #OutdoorGames

With the opening of our Totally Tots! Temporary Exhibit that runs through September 2 at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum, we wanted to take a look at a few of the games that a child would have played on a lazy summer day in 1900 that you can play today. #TotallyTots! #OsceolaCounty #HistoryisHappening #OutdoorGames #Games #SummerActivities

100 Years Ago in Osceola County

Not only were Home Guard units formed in Kissimmee, but also in St. Cloud. Women's Home Guard units were also organized. #100yearsago #OsceolaCounty #HistoryisHappening #HomeGuards #lovehistory #loveFL

Proclamation, it just sounds important, doesn’t it? Did you know that a proclamation is a public or official announcement, especially one dealing with a matter of great importance?

During the month of May, the Osceola County Historical Society received a number of acknowledgments declaring the whole month of May, History Month. #HistoryMonth #Proclamations #HistoryisHappening #lovehistory #loveFL #OsceolaCounty #CityofKissimmee #StCloud #OsceolaCountySchoolBoard

Street markers to replicate the Monument of States were designed by Dr. C.W. Bressler-Pettis, creator of the Monument of States.  The markers were paid for by the Lions Club of Kissimmee, Florida.  The markers have either been removed or disappeared over the years but two remain on the corner of Church Street and Monument Avenue. #HistoryisHappening #HistoryMonth #lovehistory #loveFL #history #OsceolaCounty
