2018 kick off meeting.jpg

This is our quarterly meeting and is open to members and non-members alike. We will have a potluck at 2:00, followed by our guest speaker (author of 12 local history books), and then our regular business meeting.

Guest Speaker:

WEKIVA MISFITS: Two Orange County neighbors attended a clandestine meeting arranged at the old Methodist Church in Jacksonville. They had not gathered on May 24, 1864 though for a church service, but the house of worship, reported one newspaper, “was filled to capacity”. This was very likely the last time these two Wekiva Misfits ever saw one another. One of the two did eventually return to his homestead. The other did not! This long lost true-life chapter of central Florida history has finally been recovered, and all thanks to a MULE!
