Exhibits at the Museum

(left) The agricultural life of Walton County is represented by a horse-drawn buggy and tools related to farming in the county.

Sidney J. Catts was a Baptist preacher who was elected Governor of Florida in 1917. The museum has replicated his porch which features photographs from his term as Governor, his bowler hat, and his wife's Inaugural gown.

DeFuniak Springs was the winter home of the Chautauqua from the 1880s until the 1930s. Our Chautauqua collection includes program books, other books about Chautauqua and its history, and items from the Chautauqua period. Also featured is a display of items that belonged to Wallace Bruce, a president of the Chautauqua and the man responsible for building the Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood, and items from his estate.

The educational heritage of Walton County is represented by a 130 year old desk from Knox Hill Academy, a portable Chautauqua desk, yearbooks from Palmer College, and memorabilia from former Walton County scholars.
