Florida’s Prehistoric Technology

Today when we think of technology we think of cell phones and computers, but what technology did Native Americans in Florida use to survive? This presentation discusses just that! We even have some replica tools that students can hold and touch to get a real feel for how these tools would have been used!

Post Office Murals and New Deal Art

There is a new stamp from the United States Post Office that celebrates post office murals. The presentation discusses these, and a few examples from West Florida post offices will be shown. The murals were created throughout the United States as part of a New Deal program to provide work for artists in the late 1930s.
