Heritage Village Park is to be a living history museum and activity venue located in northern Wakulla County. Comparable settings to illustrate goals for the Park include the five-acre Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown, Florida and Historic Westville in Lumpkin, Georgia. There are seven homes and two schools in the Historical Society's collection of "cracker houses" from the late 1800's and early 1900's to be preserved and restored. Progress is remarkable since 2012 when forty acres on Zion Hill Road was donated to the Historical Society for the park. On February 4, 2013 the Smith Creek school house was moved to the property. Lari White's 1892 ancestral home, The John Archie and Annie Carraway McLaughlin House was moved from Medart to Zion Hill Road on September 10, 2014. Both buildings are temporarily staged and with anticipated grant funding beginning in July, the structures will be placed on engineered foundations with stabilization repairs. Proceeds from the benefit concert will be used to complete the surveying for Phase One, develop the pathways, install needed infrastructure, and storm water management plans. These things are needed before the public can begin to have access to the site.

Gail Fishman will be telling us about the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) of the 1930's and early 1940's. Many of you remember the CCC and some of the projects they worked on or you have heard your parents talk about them. We are really looking forward to learning more about this and look forward to seeing you there.
