Our Mission Statement
The Captiva Island Historical Society is committed to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Captiva Island, while providing education about the remarkable people and events that have shaped its past.
The Captiva Island Historical Society Board of Directors joins me in welcoming residents and visitors alike to our web site featuring photographs and information about Captiva's past. CIHS is an outgrowth of the pioneering and well received Oral Histories work done in 2011 as part of the Captiva History Project. We hope that you find this site informative and that it will encourage you to share your knowledge and help preserve this Island's unique history. Jim Pigott, Chairman.
