  • 1. The joy children show when they light up with discovery playing on the Caboose or visiting the Heritage and Train Museums. 2. The world-class preservation of our local heritage. 3. Sharing the fun of history through our walking and biking tours, interactive programs and field trips. 4. The hospitality of our wonderful volunteers and the WGHF staff. Tell us what you love! Pam Gould WGHF Advocate
    • Chris Chan: The vibrant displays inside the museum are my favorite. I love seeing the stories visually told through old photos. It’s awesome to see my relatives in the photos, I feel so much more connected to the town because of that.

  • In 1982, Winter Garden civic organizations created this exhibit of locally-grown citrus and produce for the Central Florida Fair, held annually in west Orlando. Citrus still reigned supreme in the region, though the industry would be almost completely wiped out after three devastating freezes occurred during the remainder of the decade. Signs accompanying the products make note of Winter Garden’s mayor at the time, Ralph Fulford; Fire Chief Jim Briggs; and Police Chief James “Jimmy” Yawn. The Winter Garden Heritage Foundation houses a comprehensive collection of citrus-related history. To find out more, call 407-656-3244 or go to
  • On April 8th, 2019, the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation will host its 12th Annual Golf Tournament at the West Orange Country Club. This tournament grows more successful every year, thanks to the generous support of our community! Funds raised during this event contribute to the cost of hosting nearly 3,000 students each year at the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation who participate in our education programs. Our field trips and interactive activities follow the state’s grade-level curriculum guidelines, teaching local students about this area’s heritage all while providing valuable cultural excursions to these students, including those coming from Title I schools. Cost per player is $125 or $500 per foursome. There are several opportunities to contribute to our golf tournament: Sponsorships begin as low as $100. We also need contributions of goods and/or services for auction/door prizes. For more information about our golf tournament, contact us at 407.656.3244 or
