Lunch & Learn - Mission San Luis with Archaeologist Jerry Lee

Tallahassee, Florida
 
FTHP Workshops

Starts: 12:00pm

Thursday, August 24, 2017, 12:00pm-1:00pm, Free and open to the public.
Topic: Mission San Luis
Presenter: Jerry Lee, Archaeologist

Learn what we’ve learned about this important mission community through 30 years of archaeological research. In recognition of its historical significance, San Luis received designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1960. Today Mission San Luis is the only reconstructed Spanish mission in Florida. As a living history museum it is devoted to sharing the stories of its former Apalachee and Spanish residents. Knowledge of life at San Luis over three centuries ago comes from intensive archaeological and historical research—the site is the most thoroughly investigated mission in the southeastern United States.

Plan to join us for one or all five Thursdays in August. Contact Tondra Matthews for program details or suggestions on future topics.
