The Hall of Honor

at the Clearwater Historical Society

Building a Legacy for the Future

The Clearwater Bombers’ Legacy Project has partnered with the Clearwater Historical Society and succeeded in securing a long-term lease of the historical South Ward School on Ft. Harrison Avenue. The plans are to develop a museum to showcase the history of City of Clearwater including the history of the Clearwater Bombers.

South Ward School, located at 610 South Fort Harrison Avenue, is the oldest public school building in the county and is listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks. This wonderful set of masonry buildings constructed in 1906 and 1912 offers a rare glimpse into our local past. South Ward School has sat vacant since 2008, and is now in danger of deteriorating to a state that would not allow repair and reuse.

Clearwater Historical Society and Clearwater BombersWe have partnered with the Clearwater Historical Society to preserve the Bombers history. As a result, visitors will also be able to witness the history of the Clearwater as well as the Bombers, the 10-time world champion men’s fast pitch softball team that put Clearwater on the map.

Have your name, or that of someone you wish to honor, engraved on a symbolic commemorative brick. The engraved bricks will be located inside the meeting hall on the special Hall of Honor and are an excellent way to commemorate a loved one or friend. Each brick is just $150.00.

For larger donations, become a Designated Hitter!

Funds raised through the sale of the commemorative bricks will help pay for the restoration of the buildings. Please help us Leave a Legacy for the future!
