HAVE FUN WITH US

MARK YOUR CALENDAR!


FAMILY HISTORY NIGHT- 3rd Tues. of month at 6:30.  Local families are highlighted through genealogical research, as well as sharing photos, tall tales, and memories.


90-YEAR OLD LUNCHEON  held annually on Thurs. prior to Easter.  Our special way to honor these wonderful members of our community.


MAY DAY - One of the few venues to celebrate this Rite of Spring. Lewis Anna Woodbury Elementary and Fort Meade Child Development students attend with their parents. Third graders perform the May Pole Dance. Poems and musical numbers are also a tradition.


TROLLEY HISTORY RIDE ALONG - 3rd weekend in November. $5 per seat.

When the weather gets cool, the history of Fort Meade comes "alive" ... literally. Visitors ride the Museum's trolley or Florida Flywheelers's tram as historical and legendary characters share their imprint on the city.


BBQ DINNER IN THE OLMA HENDRICK FARM TOOL BARN - Mmmmmmm good. $10 per plate. Home made baked goods are auctioned off, too.  Date TBA.

BE A PART OF US

Whether monetary donation or museum volunteer, your help is appreciated.  The good things that happen in the Fort Meade Museum, at Museum Park, and in the Train happen because of all who are excited to share the history of Fort Meade.
