The Lake Wales History Museum 2019-20 Speaker Series kicks off Thursday, Nov. 21 with a presentation by Steve Noll about Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains and Automobiles (and Steamboats Too!)
The event promotion says Florida's history as territory and state can be told through the changing methods of transportation networks in the state. This presentation shows how Florida moved from a backwoods frontier to one of the most important states in the union.
Tying transportation history to social history, this presentation moves from the Bellamy Road of the 1820s to the modern transportation issues facing Florida in the 21st Century.
The presentation begins at 6 p.m. and is free to the public, but attendees are asked to RSVP online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/speaker-series-florida-transportation-history-tickets-79434702333. The Lake Wales History Museum is located at 325 S. Scenic Highway in a historic train depot. Light refreshments are included.
