UPCOMING EVENTS

NEW EXHIBIT OPENS

"Another Day, Another Dollar, Making A Living In The Old Days" is the newest exibit in the Floral City Heritage Museum. Lots of historic photos help tell the story of how our ancestors made a living in the late 19th and early 20th century in our part of Florida. Thirteen 3 foot by 6 foot display panels filled with historic photographs chronicle life in those early days. Artifacts include a large 80-gallon, cast iron kettle used for boiling sugar cane juice into syrup. Also on display is a cutaway of a pine tree, complete with tools for extracting the tree sap for conversion into turpentine. From phosphate to moss gathering, this display showcases the variety of old-time labor needed to make a living during the frontier days of Florida. Please stop by for an interesting step back in time to the "Real Old Florida".
