Description

According to its website, "The Student Museum has been a popular field trip destination for local [Seminole County] students for nearly 30 years. Built in 1902, this Romanesque revival style brick building has a rich history, and serves as a focal point of cultural heritage in Sanford [and is on the National Register of Historic Places]. Each year, approximately 4,000 Seminole County Public School students visit the museum as a field trip integrated into the 4th grade curriculum on Florida history.

Beginning in July 2012, the University of Central Florida (UCF) Department of History will transform this facility into the UCF Public History Center. UCF will enhance the current programming offered with the addition of new media such as virtual exhibits, artifact databases, and podcasts. UCF students will preserve and interpret the past at this site, using emerging audio, video, and digital technologies to create engaging, interactive exhibits and programming. The UCF Public History Center will foster a closer connection between the community and the university's innovative research projects, encouraging greater public engagement with this region's history."
