Florida Oranges: A Colorful History

with author Erin Thursby

The first orange groves, planted in St. Augustine in the 1500s by Ponce de León, were a precursor to what would become an integral part of Florida’s identity. Orange groves slowly spread across the state, inspiring horticultural and manufacturing ingenuity. Join us at the museum as author Erin Thursby explores the history of the Sunshine State’s most famous crop. Signed copies of her new book will be available at the event.

Attendance is free for museum members with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers.

Seating is first-come, first-served and is wheelchair accessible.
