Historical Note:

In March 1996, Maria Greene, Collections Chairperson for the Treasures of Madison County Museum, invited the Florida State Archives to participate in a community effort to collect and copy photographs of Madison County and the surrounding area. Many area residents attended, bringing their family photographs for the staff of the State Archives to copy. This collection is the result of that effort. Visit Madison County's web site!
