The Marco Memory Project




This spring, the Marco Island Historical Society (MIHS) is partnering with the University of North Carolina— Greensboro to bring you the Marco Memory Project.

There are currently thousands of photographs in the MIHS collections with limited context, unidentified people, places, or events. Help the MIHS identify the people, places, dates, and happenings pictured for your chance to win an autographed copy of “Images of Modern America: Marco Island” and be recognized in the next issue of Coastal Breeze News.

This week, we are recognizing those who have helped the MIHS idenitify people, places, dates, and happenings in photos from our previous columns.

To see more photos, this project can be viewed on the Marco Island Historical Society’s Facebook page. Thank you for interest in saving Marco Island history!

Send your submissions to collections@themihs.org.
