Maitland Historical Society
Maitland, FL

Maitland Historical Society operates four unique museums in the Central Florida area, just minutes from Orlando.

The Waterhouse Residence Museum is a restored home, built in 1884 by early settler and carpenter William Waterhouse. Guests are treated to a guided tour of this two-story home decorated in the Victorian period. Just beyond the home sits the Society's second museum, the Carpentry Shop Museum. This building served as William Waterhouse's workshop and houses a collection of antique tools. The Waterhouse museums sit on picturesque Lake Lily in Maitland.

A couple of blocks away the Society operates its two other museums. Maitland Historical Museum includes a history of Maitland in a timeline format; and houses an additional space for changing exhibitions such as "The Cold War: Bomb Shelter Boutique." Guests will also find The Telephone Museum, where a guided tour will take visitors through the ages of the telephone.

Your donations help:
Donations will help support the Society's education programs including: "Hats, Teas and History," a Victorian tea party, etiquette lesson and museum tour; and "Carpentry Crew," a hands-on program in the Carpentry Shop Museum, allowing participants to learn 19th Century woodworking techniques, while building a take home project.

There are many ways you can get involved.
