Wild Florida Exhibit

Posted on: Sep 2, 2014 @ 8:45:08 pm

Check out the latest exhibit in the Rosen Library:

Florida before Disney was considered to be a wild and relaxing place full of wild lands. Visitors came to marvel at the alligators and tropical flora and fauna, as well as to visit our beaches and enjoy a laid back atmosphere unique to our beautiful state.

In the "Wild Florida: Tourism before Disney" exhibit you can see examples of what it took to find and book a hotel, letters home to family describing the beauty of Florida (and the dangers of sharks at the beach), and even pictures from the late 1800s. We invite you to come enjoy the exhibit!

Want more information? Check out the exhibit brochure, or have a look at our Travel & Tourism Guide or the Florida Ephemera Collection!
