    Have you ever wondered what people ate in Florida before cattle, citrus, and other common "Florida foods" were introduced? This talk by Rachael Kangas, West Central & Central Region Director of the Florida Public Archaeology Network, will show how archeological research and historical documents come together to reveal how people in Southwest Florida 2,000 years ago answered life's perennial question: what's for dinner? 

    Doors open at 6:30pm, program begins at 7pm.

    Original Gulfport Walking Tour


    EVERY THIRD SATURDAY OF THE MONTH!  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.

    Come join award-winning journalist Bob Kealing, author of Good Day Sunshine State: How The Beatles Rocked Florida  

    as he shares tales of that tumultuous year – 1964 – that John, Paul, George, and Ringo  made their Floridian debut. Not only did Fab Four capture hearts and light up stadiums, they also, Kealing reveals, taught us something important about the connection between music and activism.

    A book signing will follow the talk. Copies of Good Day Sunshine State are available for pre-order. Be sure to select the pre-order option when you register (payment will be due when you order). The talk itself is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30pm, programming begins at 7pm.
