Program 1

Historical Lectures

We offer free historical lectures open to the public each month.  Our speakers are chosen carefully to insure the history of the Florida Keys is accurately shared.  We have had as many as 350 attend a single lecture which is the maximum the facility can hold.  These programs are no cost to us as our speakers volunteer and we are not charged to use the facility in which the lectures are given.
