The Bonita Springs Historical Society continued the very popular presentations with audiences filling the room at the Lions Club. Much thanks go to the Lions Club for use of the venue, to Jane Whitehead for again organizing the series, Terry Lawhon for setting up the room, and all those who volunteered to help, and of course our wonderful speakers.

Uncovering Hidden History   

By Jane Whitehead

Out of sight can be out of mind. History can be hidden for many reasons. Our speakers this year will talk about historic places and events that are removed from us by physical distance, by intentional acts or simply by the passage of time. Join us as we uncover these hidden things.

On Friday, January 16th. Jim Sernovitz spoke about “Hidden Places” in Florida to a full room and was well received. Thanks Jim!

On Friday, February 20 at 7 p.m. “Hidden Stories” with Sabine Van Dam informed and moved the full room!

On Friday, March 20 at 7 p.m., Theresa Schober had a great presentation about Mound Key capital of the Calusa Empire and hidden in plain sight in Estero Bay.

Society office phone number is (239) 992-6997.
