Join us in Tallahassee for Preservation in Progress, an event celebrating the preservation of the Goodwood Water Tower. Hosted by Goodwood Museum & Gardens and the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation, the event will include live music, delicious treats and an opportunity to thank those who make preservation of the water tower - and of historic places around the state - possible.
Built around 1912, the Goodwood water tower was done by socialite Fanny Tiers, who used Goodwood as a retreat for her New York City friends. The tower was necessary, as water mains were not available at a time when the estate was considered outside of the city limits, and Fanny wanted to have running water. The structure was damaged through time and from multiple hurricanes, but its rehabilitation allows this sentinel to Florida history to remain standing. Because of its significance and the severity of the threat it was facing, the tower was included on the Florida Trust's 2019 Florida's 11 to Save, the list of the most endangered historic places in the state.
When: Thursday, September 22, 2022 from 6 to 10 p.m.
Where: Goodwood Museum & Gardens, 1600 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee, FL 32308.
Included in your ticket: heavy hors d'oeuvres, two drink tickets and special live entertainment!
