The Captiva Island Historical Society is a non-profit organization that was established in 1981 to preserve and showcase the rich history of Captiva Island, Florida. The society is located in the historic Captiva Island Schoolhouse, which was built in 1908 and served as a school until 1949. The building was then used as a community center and fire station before being acquired by the society in 1995.

The society's mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the historical and cultural heritage of Captiva Island. To achieve this, they have created exhibits, educational programs, and events that showcase the island's history and traditions. They also maintain an extensive archive of photos, documents, and artifacts that are available for research and study.

Some of the society's most notable exhibits include the Captiva Island History Gallery, which features interactive displays and exhibits on the island's early settlers, the Calusa Indians, and the island's natural environment. They also have a display of vintage photos and artifacts from the island's fishing and boating industries, as well as a collection of historic maps and documents.
