Cultural Council Photo Exhibit


The Exhibit sponsored by the Historical Society of Lake Worth will be held April 21 through May 22 In conjunction with Historic Preservation Month.

This photographic exhibit is small portion of one of the society’s projects which records in vivid detail the history of Lake Worth from the beginning. It is an ongoing research project with many thanks to the Lake Worth Historical Museum.

The exhibit includes a photo of the surveyors who laid 7,000 farm plots and 7,000 in-town lots to be included in an auction for these parcels, a flyer extolling the virtues of this promising land, and the census of those people who were awarded lots on that day. This census then became the basis for the “oldest house” determination, results to be announced at the Preservation Awards Ceremony on May 17th.

Also included are scenes of the typical lifestyle of a pioneer, and the very creative activities that they did for fun.
Please join us!!!
We hope you will enjoy this trip through time.
