Dr. Steve Noll
“Florida Transportation: Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Steamboats, too!”
Dr. Noll, a master lecturer in the history department at the University of Florida, will tell Florida’s history as a territory and state through the changing methods of transportation designed to move people and goods both to Florida and within Florida. By 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.
This program is sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. All events will be at the Sarasota Garden Club, located at 1131 Boulevard of the Arts in Sarasota, and will start at 7:00PM.
Light refreshments will be available. The programs are free to FOSCHC members and $5 for non-members.
