Palm Harbor Museum lands prestigious grant from Florida humanities council

Palm Harbor, Florida -- The small museum with a big collection of historic artifacts from the Palm Harbor area has been awarded a grant from the Florida Humanities Council to host an exhibition from the renowned Smithsonian, titled The Way We Worked. Depicting early life of workers across the United States of America, this esteemed exhibition will be available free to the public in January and February 2015.

The time-frame will allow the management of the Palm Harbor Museum to seek out partners and sponsors to help offset the cost of mounting this retrospective and to match the Humanities Council grant of $6,000.

One of the goals we hope to achieve through The Way We Worked exhibition and related public programs is to increase knowledge about the rich heritage of our region. This exhibition will strengthen the relationships with our collaborative partners and encourage and sustain further associations with other community partners.

Palm Harbor Museum views The Way We Worked as an excellent opportunity to tell the story of our community through the narrative of its early laborers, and to expand the name and reputation of the museum as well as attracting larger audiences and increase awareness of the rich history of our region.

The national touring exhibition will allow the Palm Harbor Museum to be linked and integrated with the work of local groves, packing houses, the railroad, Boot Ranch and the ladder factory, which existed on the property currently occupied by the museum. Our objective is to educate our audience about our heritage and how the past can influence our future.
