VIRTUAL Happy Hour with the Historian | A Short History of Key West

12-January from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The Key West Art & Historical Society is excited to offer a series of VIRTUAL fun historical lectures entitled ‘Happy Hour with the Historian’.

Historian: Cori Convertito Ph.D.
Topic: A Short History of Key West

Join Cori Convertito, Curator for the Key West Art & Historical Society, for a VIRTUAL talk focusing on 200 years of Key West history!

In 2022, the island of Key West will be celebrating its bicentennial. In observing this milestone, this talk will be an abbreviated history of Key West from its founding in 1822 through to the present day. A swift canter through the island’s history – approached decade by decade – demonstrates how it has taken on many different identities and functions.

Happy Hour with the Historian is sponsored in part by The Helmerich Trust and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
