Friends and members of Historic Florida Militia provide a walking ‘timeline’ through the streets of St. Augustine to interact with our visitors, pose for pictures, and explain the history of the area to visitors of our city.  This program is sponsored by the Cultural Council.

Our Mission

The Historic Florida Militia (HFM) is a non-profit umbrella organization. Our goal has always been to provide a true historical account, including the diversity of culture, race and ethnicity of the 16th through 19th Centuries of St. Augustine and “La Florida”. We achieve this goal through the use of presentations, educational programs and living history encampments representing a number of time periods.

Member groups receive a link to their group page or can have a group page designed for them.  In addition, member groups in good standing are eligible for event coverage under the group’s insurance policy.  Member groups can also arrange at minimal cost for rental of period appropriate canvas, furniture and cooking supplies.

HFM is a registered 501 c. 3. Non-Profit Organization.
As such, all of our member companies must be not-for profit also.
