The City of Inverness Celebrates their 100 years of Incorporation
The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Inverness with a new exhibition, Inverness through the Ages: 1919 – 2019. Visit the museum Thursday, August 29, from 5 – 7 p.m. for the Exhibition Opening Reception.
This exhibition has been created in-house by museum staff in collaboration with the Museum Exhibit and Program Committee. Through the stories of new settlers’ contributions and sacrifices, visitors will come to understand how and why Inverness came to be. Learn the town’s founding fathers, how Inverness got its name, and the industries that sustained the town through land booms and depressions.
Along the way, learn interesting bits of history you may never have heard before. For example, did you know Inverness was first known as La Belle, then Tompkinsville, before it got the name it carries with pride today? This exhibition pays tribute to the contributions of servicemen and women of Inverness from the Second Seminole War to today, but also explores the hilarious antics of young teenaged pranksters in the 1950s. We share the trials and tribulations of daily life throughout the years, (anyone remember scrubbing the laundry by hand?), but also the larger changes in growth and development that have shaped the city into what it is today. The stories that make up Inverness are diverse and varied; they can be humorous, solemn, daring, or downright silly, but they are all interesting and entertaining!
For more information, please call 352-341-6428 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, please stop by the Old Courthouse Museum at One Courthouse Square in downtown Inverness for seat reservation and a tour!
