Support the Society
Want to join us in supporting a good cause? We're raising money for the History Park- Punta Gorda, and the Woman's Club, and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Your donations support the care and maintenance of our historic properties.
History Park is in need of park maintenance, building repairs and upkeep such as: new decking at the Price House, new siding for the Price House, tree removals, new sprinkler system. Updates at the Cigar Cottage, new Air Conditioning at the Trabue Land Sales office, exterior painting at the Quednau-Hindman House.
The Train Depot requires new barrel tile roof as a result of Hurricane Ian at a cost of approximately $100,000.
The Woman's Club has approximately $500,000 of restoration work that should be done to maintain and restore this building to its original glory in 1926. Projects include: upgrading the electrical; window restoration; repair restoration of the exterior of the building including soffit boards and lighting; as well as updating the interior while maintaining its historic designation.
Thank you for your support!
