Sarasota County is hosting a special historical exhibit

(June 12, 2019)

The exhibit, called “Shaping Sarasota: Four Memorable Women,” showcases the growth of Sarasota and the influence they had on early community development.

“These women greatly influenced the direction of life in the early Sarasota community,” said Priscilla Brown, Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources program coordinator. “Their legacies can be seen today throughout the county today at well-known landmarks, including Phillippi Estate Park, Historic Spanish Point, Ringling Museum and Selby Gardens.”

Funding for this program was provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
