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 and be recognized in the next issue of Coastal Breeze News.
