ESHP (The Everglades Society for Historic Preservation) was founded in 2004. Our territory of interest includes Everglades City, Plantation Island, Chokoloskee, Ochopee, Copeland & Lee Cypress, and Jerome.

Our governing board includes the following officers and directors who are elected by board members every three years. Members are responsible for participating in our various projects.
We are advocates for the preservation of the historic Everglades City area and its environment. We believe this goal complements and enhances the preservation of the Everglades ecosystem and a thriving local economy based on fishing and tourism. The Everglades environment is a crucial element in the history of the area and is fundamental to the existence and mission of ESHP.
