Building on the Past: How the Community Preserved the Kellogg Mansion
November 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Dunedin Public Library has created a 3D immersive exhibition to allow current and future generations to explore the now demolished Kellogg Mansion. When the greater Dunedin community learned that the Kellogg Mansion could not be saved from demolition, they sprang into action. In this talk, attendees will learn how the community and leaders came together to ensure this iconic and historic structure would be able to be enjoyed for decades to come. Historic buildings embody the lives of those who built, worked, and lived in them and they tell stories that help connect us with our past. The Kellogg Mansion is not unique, as even landmarked and listed significant structures continue to confront issues relating to development, loss through neglect and inattention, structural decay, and pressures from climate change and natural disasters.
The virtual exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Dunedin Public Library.
