Pictured is the Northgate Publix Store, as it looked when it opened in 1957. The mid-century modern arch to the right was removed when the shopping center expanded for the relocation of Rheineaurs women’s apparel (now the location of Badcock Home Furnishings).

Visit the Museum of Winter Haven History between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturdays. The museum is located at 660 Pope Avenue, at Lake Howard Drive, and is free and open to the public.
