Orlando Remembered

Orlando Remembered, a committee of Historical Society of Central Florida, Inc. is dedicated to preservation of the memories of Orlando, "The City Beautiful," primarily as it was during the period of 1930 to 1950. Founded in 1981 by Don Acito and Andy Serros, Orlando Remembered has partnered with leading businesses, local governments, institutes of higher education, and area historical societies, in their efforts to remember the landmarks of Orlando's past. To date, the organization has constructed and displayed 18 exhibits throughout the downtown area.

RICHES Mosaic Interface, a project of the University of Central Florida's College of Arts and Humanities, currently hosts digital versions based on the Orlando Remembered displays. The online exhibits expand the reach of the physical displays, allowing Orlando's past to be viewed by a wider audience of scholars, students, and the general public.
