The Photographic Archive of the Polk County Historical Association was initiated by former board member Louise Frisbie. Members of the Association contributed photographs from their personal collections. Many of these photographs were submitted to the Florida State Archives, where they can be viewed online. Florida State Archives link. This is a unique visual portrayal of people and places in Polk County for more than a century.
Polk County Historical Quarterly
The Polk County Historical Association publishes its “Historical Quarterly” as a service to its members and to the wider historical community. Called one of the best of its kind, the “Historical Quarterly” features scholarly historical papers written by academic, student, and local historians. Most articles feature Polk County or Central Florida themes. We welcome submission of articles for future publication.
The “Quarterly” is currently searching for a new editor.
An index and complete series of the journal are available at the Polk County Historical and Genealogical Library. Our online digital archive contains PDF files of issues between June 1974 and December 2004 and an index. They can be accessed using the links below.
