To commemorate Women’s History Month in March, the Jacksonville Historical Society will present “Remarkable Women of North Florida History” at its March Speaker Series event.
On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Emily R. Lisska, former executive director of the Jacksonville Historical Society and president of the Florida Historical Society, will share the stories of some of Florida’s most innovative and interesting women who made history here before and after the Great Fire of 1901 in Jacksonville.
The program begins at 11:30 a.m. with a box lunch (registration required) and Lisska will present at noon. The event will be held at Old St. Andrew’s Church, 317 A. Philip Randolph Blvd., across the street from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena and adjacent to the Baseball Grounds.
The Speaker Series is underwritten by Retina Associates and Fred H. Lambrou, Jr., M.D. Box lunches can be ordered for $15. JHS members who do not wish to purchase a lunch can attend for free; non-members not purchasing a lunch can reserve a seat for $10. Register at jaxhistory.org.
