HCA Building in Apalachicola

The mission of Apalachicola Center for History, Culture & Art is to teach that the arts continue to define civilization.
Housed in one of the two remaining 1836 Cotton Exchange Warehouses, the museum is led by its Board and its Director. The Center also creates an economic impact for the region, while messaging to its community of all ages, as well as to tourists, that visual, spoken and written arts, as well as musical art create unique individual and communal experiences which offer solace to the soul of mankind.

Apalachicola Center for History, Culture & Art develops opportunities for all residents and visitors to expand their knowledge through exhibits, programs and presentations by local and guest artists, educators and performers.

HCA is among many art museums in Apalachicola as well as history museums in Apalachicola and aims to encourage appreciation and awareness of art, culture and history by providing a wide range of programs for youth to senior citizens.

HCA is dedicated to arts education and artistic enrichment and encourages the development and capabilities of artists and aspiring artists from both the local and national art community.
