"History Comes Alive" in Dunedin
The public is invited for a leisurely stroll down "Memory Lane" at the 13th annual "History Comes Alive", Saturday, October 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the historic Dunedin Cemetery, located on CR1 just south of Virginia Avenue.
Historical Society volunteers will recreate some of the lives of Dunedin citizens from the past who will be prepared to tell visitors about life here in their day. Each reenactor will be dressed in the style of their person's era and lifestyle. They will tell of their lives and show scrapbooks with photographs, newspaper articles, and historical documents as well as artifacts and family heirlooms.
Persons depicted are Dr. W.S. Blatchley, a famous naturalist; William Christie, a WWI veteran who became a City Commissioner; Marie Logan, Head Nurse at Mease Hospital; Elizabeth Skinner Jackson, Champion of women's right to vote; Dr. Jason Edgar, Dunedin's first physician and newspaper publisher; Johanna Daniels, whose family operated the first dairy in the area; and the Beckett family, whose farm included 160 acres bordered by Clearwater Bay.
Admission is a suggested donation of $2.00 per person. Admission includes a program/map, a reproduction souvenir fan and refreshments.
This event is co-sponsored by State Representative Tom and Mrs. Alice Anderson. The Historical Society also would like to thank the Florida Humanities Council for the souvenir fans.
