The Grove: Past, Present and Future (Thursdays, 5:30pm-7:30pm)  

This course provides an in-depth study of the Call-Collins House at The Grove, including recent rehabilitation efforts undertaken by the Florida Department of State. Each session explores how the story of The Grove intersects with broader themes in local, regional and national history. This approach will touch upon several topics critical to understanding the history of The Grove and its residents, including slavery; the Seminole Wars; business and politics in territorial Florida; the Civil War and Reconstruction; the Gilded Age and Progressive Era; the Civil Rights Movement; environmental sustainability; and historic preservation. Participants will gain a greater appreciation for how the history and ongoing interpretation of one place opens up a window onto two centuries of the American experience.

Mobility Requirement: Ability to walk short distances over uneven terrain and stand for short periods of time.

Suggested Reading: Bibliography at the Grove Website
