How does your garden grow?

Summertime and the livin' is easy, fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high... in the Amelia Island Museum of History Garden. Stop by if you haven't recently - the flowers are in full bloom and the cotton is over 4 feet tall!

New Photography Exhibit

Nassau County at Work and Play

Come join us on June 10th at 7pm in Baker Hall as Foy Maloy, Publisher of the Fernandina Beach NewsLeader, will speak on the paper's 150 year contribution to the documentation of our county at work and play as we celebrate the opening of our newest exhibit.

The Museum's 2010 photo exhibit, entitled Nassau County at Work and Play will showcase the residents of our area through the lens of a camera. Throughout our history, residents have made a living with an honest day's work. Whether as a shrimper, a fisherman, or a mill-worker, Fernandina has always been a blue-collar town with hard working citizens. We hope to capture this spirit of our industriousness, and while Fernandina might work hard, we play even harder! We also hope to capture our residents enjoying themselves. For centuries, people have hiked, biked, sailed, surfed, and generally enjoyed themselves on our beaches, salt marshes, and endless wilderness. We will combine submitted photographs with archival photos of Fernandina's past and present residents working and playing.

Admission is free for museum members and $5 for non-members. For more information call Alex Buell at 261-7378 ext. 102.
