The mission of Martin Digital History (MDH) is to encourage the appreciation of Martin County’s unique history by collaborating with community members and local organizations to collect, present, and interpret relevant digital content.

This project, orchestrated by the Martin County Library System, is the result of the planning teamwork of several far-sighted community members and organizations, including Sandra Thurlow, Historical Society of Martin County, Black Heritage Initiative, Stuart Heritage, The Library Foundation of Martin County, and many others. It is open for public participation.

Martin Digital History was largely funded under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) from the Martin County Board of County Commissioners. For FY2022-23, 87.5% of the total costs is supported by ARPA ($251,208), 11.5% by Impact100 Martin ($33,000), and 1% by the Library Cooperative Grant Program administered by the Florida Department of State’s Division of Library and Information Services distributed through the Southeast Florida Library Information Network ($3,000).
