Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: “Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles (& Steamboats too!)” by Steve Noll
Florida’s history as territory and state can be told through the changing methods of transportation designed to move people and goods both to Florida and within Florida. Examining the changing transportation networks in the state, Dr. Steven Noll will trace how Florida changed from a backwoods frontier to one of the most important states in the union. Tying transportation history to social history, Dr. Noll will take us on a journey that moves from the Bellamy Road of the 1820s to the modern transportation issues currently facing the Sunshine State. He will also look at transportation in the Heartland and touch on the history of transportation with respect to cattle and citrus.
A “Meet and Greet” with Dr. Noll accompanied by book sales and signings will be held from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm prior to his lecture in the park recreation hall. Parking will be available in the overflow fields at the campground entrance. ADA handicapped accessible parking is available at the park recreation hall. The lecture is free and park entry fees are waived
