To bring the Rural Heritage Center alive by engaging the rural community to gather together for education, fun, and fellowship.




The Rural Heritage Center is a unique gathering place in the rural community of Geneva for members wanting to host activities, classes and events. Formerly, the Geneva School House, this historic facility was generously donated by the Seminole County School Board in 2009. The Rural Heritage Center then partnered with neighboring rural communities of Black Hammock and Chuluota to create a community learning center to serve the Central Florida community. The Center continues to be run by a volunteer board, who are passionate about preserving the rural history of Geneva for generations to come. Donations are the primary source of support for keeping the Center operational. To donate click here. You can help preserve the rural history by becoming a member of the Rural Heritage Center. Members are able to book the facility for events, classes and activities. To become a member today, simply fill out the membership form and send with the suggested donation amount.
