An old footlocker in my mom’s shed held more treasures than I could have imagined. My grandmother’s handwritten notes about her family history, her personal stories, my grandfather’s hand-drawn cards to my grandmother, his engineering drawings of sewage treatment plants around Florida, a list of how many Florida towns he designed those systems for and a patent application for something he invented. Then there were old photos and sketches.  How I wish I could ask them questions about many of those items.  Lesson learned - embrace the past because it has helped shape the future. #history #florida #floridahistory #past #future #oldtrunks #floridawriter #floridablogger
#todayinhistory in 1819, Spanish minister Do Luis de Onis and U.S. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams sign the Florida Purchase Treaty, in which Spain agrees to cede the remainder of its old province of Florida to the United States. 🗺 Interesting fact: Spain’s hold on Florida was tenuous in the years after American independence, and numerous boundary disputes developed with the United States. In 1819, after years of negotiations, Secretary of State John Quincy Adams achieved a diplomatic coup with the signing of the Florida Purchase Treaty, which officially put Florida into U.S. hands at no cost beyond the U.S. assumption of some $5 million of claims by U.S. citizens against Spain. Formal U.S. occupation began in 1821, and General Andrew Jackson, the hero of the War of 1812, was appointed military governor. Florida was organized as a U.S. territory in 1822 and was admitted into the Union as a slave state in 1845.  #johnquincyadams  #florida  #floridahistory  #andrewjackson  #ushistory

Some of my favorite times with my kids are when we spontaneously hop in the car and go explore new places in our area that we have never been before. . . Last week we went to the only surviving plantation in Florida. It's so sad that we have such a shameful and brutal history of treating other humans as less then human and as property, so that others might live in luxery. Soberingly it still happens today, not only in other countries but in ours. I want to make sure that my children are aware of our past so that they can be the path makers for a better future. #oldflorida#floridahistory#explorida#lovefl#blackhistorymonth🖤🏛
Juan Ponce de Leon (1474-1521) 🦁 was a #spanish 🗡 warrior (#Conquistador), nobleman, and ⛵explorer who alledgedly was searching for the 💧 Fountain of Youth under 👑 #king Ferdinand II. He assisted #spain 🇪🇸 in the defeat against the Muslims of Grenada. Christopher #columbus first sailed the ocean #blue in 1492. He sailed on Columbus' second #voyage in 1493 at age 19. In 1506 (Columbus dies) he was assigned to conquer #puertorico 🇨🇺which he accomplished in 1507. In 1509 he was named Govenor of Puerto Rico. In 1512 🤴Ferdinand II urged #deleon to travel #northwest to discover new lands. To find new land unclaimed by Columbus, he landed in Florida 🌷🌹🌻🌼 ("Full of Flowers") in 1513. The fountain was rumored to be located in Bimini. Ponce De Leon was attacked in #florida by native Calusa #warriors and he was #shot with an arrow poisoned from a machinery tree. The statue of De Leon is located in #sanjuan Puerto Rico. #history #addforadd #addme #history #spanishhistory #floridahistory

It’s not a beautiful piece of art but it’s a part of history that I think is beautiful, Circa 1890 Jesse Linzy built this side walk from the lighthouse down to the river replacing an old wooden board walk. It wasn’t necessary but he had the skills and wanted to make something nice in his time working at the lighthouse. #history #ponceinletfl #floridahistory #odd #random_acts_of_photography #nofilter #randombeauty
Honey Tangerines right off the tree. Sweet and delicate, with a wonderful texture and lovely scent. First produced in 1922 by pairing a tangerine with a sweet orange. . . #floridahistory #florida #citrus #floridacitrus #lovechild #tangerine #organic #orange #fruit #wild
