2020-2021 Events

It is with our greatest consideration for your well-being we present a schedule of events; all outdoors, all adhering to responsible best practices, and all with that unique blend of education and creativity you’ve come to expect from the Captiva Island Historical Society.

In this our 10th season we present programs in formats and locations we have not used in the past. While our priority is to maintain your health and safety, our dedication to bringing “Captiva history to life” remains the same.SCTC.Logo copy.jpg
