Each year Florida celebrates its heritage with Florida Heritage Month, March 15 to April 15. Throughout the month, Florida residents and visitors will have special opportunities to experience and embrace the many historical sites, cultural activities and literary programs throughout the state. The activities are intended to help residents and visitors gain an understanding and appreciation of Florida’s commitment to supporting historic preservation, arts and culture, and libraries that create economic vitality, enhance quality of life and instill community pride. Residents and visitors can find more information about Florida Heritage Month and related events at www.floridaheritagemonth.com.
From now until the close of Florida Heritage Month on April 15, we’ll be featuring some of the people and places that contribute to Florida’s cultural legacy. Join us for this Florida Heritage blogging blitz!
