Central Florida History 101: Civil War to Great Freeze

Friday, July 31, noon

Join museum director Michael Perkins on Zoom as he reviews the seminal events that shaped Central Florida history from the Civil War to the “Great Freeze.” This is a repeat of the first of our four-part series that delved into the rich history of our area from long before the opening of Walt Disney World to today.
