The Captiva Island Historical Society's archives include photographs, postcards, family letters, newspaper articles and oral histories. Many have been scanned and stored digitally for use by researchers, Islanders and visitors. You can view a few of our archival photographs below to give you just a small glimpse into Captiva's colorful past.
We know there are wonderful photographs and items of historical significance belonging to many Captiva families and past residents or visitors to the island. Won't you share your photographs with us? We will scan them and return them to you. Write or email us and we will make arrangements to pick up your items and return them safely to you. Help us preserve Captiva's history by sharing your memories with the Captiva Island Historical Society.
