Time: 5:30 pm til 7:00 pm

Location: Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Ave E, Bradenton, Florida 34208

Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: “Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles (& Steamboats!)” 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, 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 the Sunshine State in the 21st century.

Free admission and parking. No RSVP required, seating on a first come, first served basis.
Open to the public. Ages 13 & up recommended.

Manatee Village Historical Park is proud to be a Florida Humanities Council (FHC) Speaker Series partner.
