For those of you who understand that knowing our past is import in shaping our future, a visit to the Crowley Museum is a great adventure in learning. Located east of Sarasota, Florida, the museum is actually a farm community that is a trip in a time machine to post Civil War Florida. Everything is as it was. For those of you that live anywhere close to this wonderfully preserved piece of history, may I suggest you attend the Southwest Florida Heritage Festival on Saturday, February 25th. It’s an all day event starting at 9 and lasting until 5.
Florida could be a very hostile environment in the years prior to the 1900s. The “Cracker” culture is a study in how humans adapt and persevere in the face of hardship. There is no better way to learn about the actual life during this period than a visit to Crowley!
I’ll be attending and presenting my power-point presentations featuring Florida history for this period. I’d love to meet you and can promise a fun learning experience. I’ve included a few photos to give you a sampling of just part of what there is to enjoy. SEE YOU AT CROWLEY!
You’ll find the Museum at 16405 Myakka Road, Sarasota, FL. For more info or instructions call 941.322.1000 or visit the web at firstname.lastname@example.org
PS – My new suspense/thriller THE BAIT MAN is being released next week!
