We invite you to explore Central Florida’s past by searching and browsing over 80,000 images of historic materials. Diaries and letters describe the region and how people survived day-by-day in this extreme and rugged environment. Maps, photographs, and postcards illustrate how the region looked in the early years and how it changed over time.

Central Florida Memory is a cooperative project begun in 2002 by three institutions: The University of Central Florida Library, The Orange County Regional History Center, and The Orange County Library System. UCF has been the primary technology support and host institution for Central Florida Memory since its inception. Starting in 2002, UCF has been the project lead to secure grants and digitize materials from our own collection as well as selections from partner institutions.
