Description

The Museum of the Apopkans, located at 122 East Fifth Street in Apopka, Florida, includes exhibits about the history of Apopka and Northwest Orange County. The museum is operated by the Apopka Historical Society, which was formed in 1968, after Edward A. Miner displayed his exhibit of early Apopka artifacts at the Folk Festival that same year. The Central Florida Anthropological Society contributed to the Apopka Historical Society, as well as several artists: Bertha Wolz, Betty Jamison, Vickie Doggett, and David Findley. The society was incorporated in 1971 with Elizabeth Grossenbacher as president, Mildred S. Whiteside was vice president, Reba R. Evans as secretary, and Miner as curator. The first Board of Directors included John H. Land, Elin Larson, and Mary Lee Welch.
