Florida Transportation History: Planes, Trains, & Automobiles (& Steamboats too!)
May 15, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
To finish our esteemed speaker’s series, the Lightner Museum is pleased to welcome Dr. Noll from the University of Florida to give audiences an opportunity to more fully understand how transportation played a pivotal part in the development of Florida. This 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 Bellamy Road of the 1820s to the modern transportation issues facing Florida in the 21st century. This is a free event. Registration is required and can be made online at LightnerMuseum.org.
