      Volume 1, 2021
      VOLUME III, 2021
      President’s Message

      As Gulfport Historical Society, like so many other non-profit organizations, comes out of the worst of the pandemic, our board and small staff have lots of ideas and energy to offer programs for all ages. Many of you may not realize that right before we went into lockdown, the Society assumed the lease for the Gulfport Arts Center in Chase Park. Right now, the city’s finishing the last of the renovations to the Arts Center, and we hope to unveil it before the end of the calendar year. 

      Later this month, we’ll have a strategic planning session about how the future looks for both the Gulfport History Museum and the Gulfport Arts Center, and we welcome member input. I always welcome conversation about where we’re headed, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.

      I do have one request of everyone reading this: Please consider donating to the Gulfport Historical Society, either one time or on a regular basis. We make it super-easy to donate, and after a long 18 months, we need your donations more now than ever. Thank you!

      – Cathy

      The spectral will mix with spirits of a different kind when local author Carol J. Perry discusses her new book, “Be My Ghost,” along with other haunted Florida stories. Her first-in-a-series publication has received top-notch reviews on Amazon.

      The October 22 fright fest begins at 7:30 p.m. with cocktails, followed at 8  p.m. with a book discussion at the historically haunted Peninsula Inn. The inn is located at 2937 Beach Blvd. South.

      The cost is $25, with tickets available at Gulfport Beach Bazaar. This includes admission, a copy of the book and one free drink. The author will sign books and chat with fans afterward.

      History Melds With Modern Times

      There’s still time to view local photographic artist Larry Busby’s melange of historical Gulfport images merged with modern-day pictures and people. This exhibit will remain open, for free, through October 28 in the Catherine Hickman Center’s lobby during regular operating hours (Mon.- Fri., 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.) at 5501 27th Ave. South in Gulfport.

      Some of his photos, which blend an assortment of black-and-white and color images, are still available for sale. They are featured on the Gulfport Historical Society’s Facebook page. You can also email us to arrange for purchase.

       
      We’re Looking For You!
      Volunteers are needed to greet museum visitors on Tuesdays and Fridays. You do not need extensive knowledge of Gulfport’s history, but we do offer one-on-one training. The Gulfport Historical Society is also seeking volunteers comfortable with working with computers on the aforementioned days. Volunteers’ well-behaved canine companions are welcome. For further information, please email us.
       
      What Is This?
      Victorian women in mourning often kept the remembrance of a loved one who had passed close to their hearts with a locket of the
      deceased‘s hair encased in a memorial pin.
