Florida’s Female Pioneers
Join Dr. Peggy Macdonald, Historian and Author at the Historic Anderson-Price Memorial Building in Ormand Beach on June 27, 2020 as she examines some of the women who have shaped Florida, including Harriet Beecher Stowe, of Uncle Tom’s Cabin fame, who kick-started Florida’s tourism industry with her 1873 book, Palmetto Leaves; and May Mann Jennings, a suffragist and conservationist who helped establish Royal Palm State Park, forming the nucleus of Everglades National Park.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Communtiy Project Grant, in partnership with the Ormond Beach Historical Society. The Ormond Beach Historical Society is the only private, nonprofit organization working to preserve and share the rich history of Ormond Beach.
