Walton County Heritage Association


The Walton County Heritage Association is a nonprofit (501-C-3) corporation that was organized in 1988 for four main purposes:

  • to promote the preservation and restoration of buildings and other landmarks of historical interest within Walton County;
  • to maintain the Walton County Heritage Museum to preserve the heritage of Walton County for the education and enjoyment of current and future generations by collecting, preserving, and exhibiting artifacts and information from the time of its original inhabitants to the present;
  • to foster and enhance the development and sense of history which is unique to Walton County; and
  • to secure cooperation and unity of action between individual citizens, businesses, and other groups as may be necessary to fulfill these purposes.

The Association depends upon the support of its members and the Walton County business community to accomplish its goals. Membership in the Association includes membership in both the Walton County Heritage Museum and the Walton County Genealogy Society. The Museum hosts both a Gift Shop and a Research Center, which makes photographs and documents available to its visitors.

The Walton County Heritage Museum is located in historic downtown DeFuniak Springs on the circle around Lake DeFuniak. The City of DeFuniak Springs beautifully restored the former L&N Train Depot in 2000, and it has been the home of the Museum since 2002.
