  • June 7, 2014—El Camino Real ~ Presented by Bob Hurst

    Today, travel within Florida has been simplified thanks to interstates, the turnpike, and numerous state and county roads. In 17th century Florida, Spanish settlements existed in St. Augustine and Pensacola with mission towns like San Luis scattered in between. For travel and communication within Florida, the Spanish carved a crude trail from the north Florida wilderness. This trail was thought to be long gone, lost to forest growth and development. Please join Bob Hurst as he pinpoints, using photographic evidence and maps, the location of the Florida's El Camino Real, or King's Road.

Colonial Crafts

From Noon to 2:00 p.m. on the First Saturday of the month, children are invited to participate in making crafts that they can then take home. Colonial Crafts is free with admission.
