Welcome to The Rural Heritage Center

Mission Statement: The Rural Heritage Center engages families and community in cultural and educational experiences by preserving rural traditions which teach lessons for present and future generations.


In 2007, the Island & Village of Geneva Rural Heritage Center, Inc. was formed as a 501(c)(3) organization to help celebrate the rural heritage of Eastern Seminole County.  In 2009, the Seminole County School Board generously offered to donate the historic Geneva School House to be the home of the Rural Heritage Center.  The Center partnered with neighboring rural communities of Black Hammock and Chuluota to create a community learning center to provide hands-on learning to the Central Florida community.

 

Since then, the Geneva School House is ushering in a  “Rural Renaissance” for Central Florida.  At 101 E. Main Street in Geneva, the historic brick school house is now the home of the Rural Heritage Center, celebrating the rural traditions of the past, present and future of Seminole County,Central Florida and beyond .
