    Join the Gulfport Historical Society as they take a stroll through history in Gulfport. The tour examines the creation of this small seaside hamlet; the tour guides — all Gulfport locals with a penchant for history and storytelling — share the town's history and stories with the group. The tour starts at the Gulfport History Museum where you can take a peek at some of their historic photos.

    Tour is free for Gulfport Historical Society members. All others pay $15 per person. We have a water cooler at the museum; please bring your refillable bottle to fill up before the tour.

    These tours sell out, so advance ticket purchase is highly suggested. Members should pre-register to ensure they have a spot. We don't love turning people away, but when the group gets too large it's hard for everyone to hear our tour guides.

    Please note: While it's optional, our tour guides do appreciate tips.

    Join us for "You Don't Know JACK – Gulfport Edition", an irreverent history quiz night – this time with cash prizes! Bring a team of four (or form a team that night) and choose your team name. Teams can register online. It's a game of local knowledge and speed. Each team will have a buzzer; the first to get the most correct answers moves onto the final round. To make it even more fun – and challenging – we'll have a local celebrity team. Do you know more than a local celebrity? Come find out! Teams must pay to join, but the amount can be as little or as much as you wish – just remember, the winning team takes home half the entry fees! Questions? Please email info@gulfporthistoricalsociety.org.

    Dogs and well-behaved children welcome. BYOB; GHS members have access to the Square Mullet Clubhouse. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

    Gulfport Stories

    featuring  TC Carr

    T.C. Carr is one of Florida's top musical artists. He has earned a reputation as one of the premier harmonica players in the United States and Europe. He is a Florida native and passionate singer songwriter (learn more: fb.com/tccarrmusic)

    But rather than us tell you, come to our July porch party to hear TC tell you about his life and musical career – in his own words. 

    Come hear Gulfport stories, meet your neighbors, and learn about what makes Gulfport such a special place.

    Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; at 7 p.m., Cathy Salustri and TC Carr will begin speaking.

    This porch party is part of the Gulfport Historical Society's oral history project.

    Dogs and well-behaved children welcome. Gulfport Historical Society members have access to our Square Mullet clubhouse; others welcome to BYOB. Please feel free to bring snacks to share, but that's not necessary to enjoy the porch party!
