Lecture Series: Florida Water Stories

The Winter Haven Public Library presents the 2017-18 Lecture Series featuring: Florida Water Stories!
Fifth and final lecture of the series: Lighthouses of the Sunshine State, presented by Brendan Burke, maritime archaeologist and Florida Humanities Coucil Speaker. From St. Augustine’s 16th century signal towers to an inland lighthouse in Lake George, Florida has a rich tradition in lighting its coast. Over 50 lighthouses stand along Florida’s 1,300 miles of coast. Learn how the Sunshine State’s lighthouses have endured shifting sandbars, reef-strewn shallows, hurricanes, earthquakes, and even military attacks.
