7/21/19 One seat remains for this popular field trip. First come, first serve,
Join the members of the new Charlotte County Florida Historical Society for a summer doldrums field trip. Think of it as "Pirates of the Caribbean" meets "Gone with the Wind". We will have a wonderful day with a guided tour in the beautiful ( air conditioned )Tampa Bay History Center on the Riverwalk, downtown Tampa. Tampa Bay, now an international port city, had its meager beginning with Charlotte Harbor in the[masked]s competing for the Cuban cattle trade. We ended up getting the cattle trade, but they got everything else. We will take most the day there and have our lunch at the Colombian Café before driving to The Gamble Mansion, Plantation and Confederate Memorial. We have a presentation by historian professor Diane Wallman on the Gamble site for the historical society on September 10th at the Wintergarden Presbyterian Church. You can make your reservation by paypal to: bill straus (732)[masked], or mail a check to The Charlotte County Florida Historical Society, 749 Merrick Lane NW Port Charlotte FL 33948
