High Springs would pool its knowledge about the water of this community regarding usage, sense of place, industry, spirituality, physicality, history, recreation as we interpret it.

The Historical Society is looking for the following people/groups to participate with letters of commitment and support:  Partnering organizations, local scholars/presenters, and volunteers.

Please go this link to see better the Overview below:

Please go to this link to see better the sample letter below which can be used to submit to the High Springs Historical Society.

This is a great opportunity for our community to show the treasures we have here, and to show what we do and do best.  There are six communities in Florida which will be chosen and time is short.  High Springs is the only community applying which is in the heart of the springs region.

The Society needs the applications and letters by Friday, June 26, 2015.  Once approved, the information may be revised but we need the initial information by then.

If you have something to contribute about our waters here in our area, please help us out.
