Welcome Largo Area Historical Society As a PGS Organizational Member

PGS seeks to demonstrate its support of other organizations which share our objectives in promoting the research and preservation of ancestral families and their histories.

We are pleased to announce the Largo Area Historical Society as an organizational member.

In the early 1970's, an idea for a historical society evolved from the Area Development Committee of the Greater Largo Chamber of Commerce. Largo Area Historical Society, Inc. was granted a charter on October 17, 1973. Early preservation projects of the Society included saving approximately 28 of the City's original 1915 brick streets, the Lowe Barn, and the historic Feed Store which was moved to Largo Central Park in 1992, to name just a few.

The mission of the Society is to provide historical education, promote Largo’s rich heritage, and strive for preservation of historical documents and places of interest.

·         The Society meets the 2nd Monday of the month (except March, July, and August) at the historic Feed Store (295 Central Park Dr., Largo). Meetings start at 6:30 pm with potluck followed by a business meeting and a speaker.

·         The historic Feed Store is open to public tours from 10-2pm every 1st Saturday (except July and August).
