Historical Commission Vacancies

The Alachua County Historical Commission will soon have two Citizen at Large vacancies. County residents with a knowledge of local history are encouraged to apply, and appointments will be made by the County Commission. The application deadline is September 8, 2022.

An in-person quorum is required for the advisory board meetings held in downtown Gainesville, at 5:30 p.m. on the second Monday most months of the year. One appointment is for a volunteer term through April 30, 2025, and the other for a term through April 30, 2024.

The mission of the ACHC is "To promote, preserve and protect Alachua County's historic resources." The Board provides research and recommendations to the Alachua County Commission on matters related to County history. The Historical Commission provides leadership in advancing the identification, protection, preservation, and interpretation of Alachua County's cultural heritage. They provide historical research and documentation for exhibits, educational programs, and pamphlets about County history. In addition, they may assist local organizations such as museums, libraries and archives, historical, archaeological, genealogical societies, and other institutions with historical objectives.
