Join Venice, Florida historian and museum director Harry Klinkhamer This presentation will look at the life of city planner John Nolen and how the Sunshine State made and broke his career. One of the first city planners in a field not yet created, Nolen left his mark on communities from San Diego, California, to Bristol, Connecticut. But it was Florida where his business and reputation rose, only to be hit head on by the Florida Land Bust and Great Depression. Almost 100 years later, we can still see his work in places like Venice, Florida and his influence in places like Seaside, Florida.
