Alger-Sullivan Historical Society
The Alger-Sullivan Historical Society is Florida's most north-westerly museum. Located in the national Alger-Sullivan Lumber Company Residential Historic District, our mission is to collect, preserve and display memorabilia of the early twentieth century town of Century, Fla. which was created by one of the last great steam powered sawmill companies east of the Mississippi River, and the history of the surrounding communities. Tours are offered by knowledgeable members who tell the history of the area as guest look over the many items. Museum artifacts are housed in the town's 1913 post office, a wooden box car attached to a 1919 sawmill locomotive, a company supervisor's home and a small tool building. There are more than 750 items and collections of local memorabilia. Items include belt driven grist mills, saws, pre-electric home appliances and business machines, business records, high school and military uniforms, hospital equipment, blacksmiths tools and sawmill-logging dioramas.
