The Museum was established by The Cape Coral Historical Society to preserve the history of Cape Coral and Southwest Florida. Originally, the
building was the clubhouse at The Cape Coral Country Club. Then, in 1977, it was moved to Four Freedoms Park on Tarpon Court and used as a
multi-functional facility. Finally, in 1983, the Historical Society moved the building to Cape Coral's Cultural Park for the establishment
of the Museum.
