Central Florida Anthropological Society

The Central Florida Anthropological Society represents Orange, S...eminole, Osceola and Lake Counties.

CFAS was established in 1963 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation, study and preservation of Florida's pre-Columbian, historic and contemporary cultural heritage. CFAS is a chapter of the Florida Anthropological Society. Our membership is open to people of all ages and backgrounds including students, professionals, volunteers and the community-at-large.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month from September through June at Winter Park Towers, 1111 South Lakemont Avenue, Winter Park. Doors will be open at 6:30pm for light refreshments. Presentations begin promptly at 7pm.

We welcome members of the Greater Orlando community who have a general interest in anthropology and/or local history and culture.

CFAS hosted the 63rd annual meeting of the Florida Anthropological Society in Orlando in 2011.
