Purpose:
The Coral Springs Historical Advisory Committee was organized on October 17, 2000. Its mission is to actively collect, preserve and showcase memorabilia relating to all aspects of the City’s history. Together with City staff, the Committee fosters a sense of community spirit and encourages citizen participation and pride in the history.


Projects:
The Committee publishes a free historic calendar each year using archived images and maps featuring the City’s creation and growth.  It has also produced five coloring books with historic themes.  Images of Coral Springs was written by the City Historian and the Communications and Marketing director in 2003 in celebration of the City’s 40th anniversary.   
In 2004, the Coral Springs Covered Bridge and the Museum of Coral Springs History, both built as temporary structures in 1964, were proclaimed Florida Heritage Sites.  The bridge is the only covered bridge in the public right of way in Florida.  The museum was originally Coral Ridge Properties’ (the City’s developer) real estate sales office.  It was moved to Mullins Park, restored and opened as the Museum of Coral Springs History in 2005.  Also in that year, Historic Bridle Path signs were installed along Coral Hills Drive, part of the original trail through the middle of town during the 1960s and 1970s. 
The museum displays many of the plats and maps from the former sales office as well as miniatures of the City’s original buildings.  There are series of diverse exhibits at the Center for the Arts and Northwest Regional Library, the latter appealing to a younger audience.
