Heritage Preservation


Calhoun County Public Libraries are dedicated to preserving books, documents, and other materials that shine a light on the history and rich cultural heritage of the Florida Panhandle.  Along the walls and inside the curio cabinets are plaques, photos, paintings, and more preserving our knowledge of the past.


Calhoun County Public Library, in partnership with Advantage Archives, now offers a searchable online database of extensive research on Calhoun County’s Muskogee Creek history.  Researchers everywhere can enjoy over 3,000 pages of history and heritage, compiled and donated by Dr. Andrew Boggs Ramsey.


The Community History Archives are user friendly, and easy to learn. Search by keyword or browse the archive by title or publication date.
