DeBary Hall Historic Site is submitting a “Call for historians, historic preservationists, architects, and archaeologists” to present at their new series, Lemonade Lectures. This casual learning series will take place on the front veranda of the 1871 Italianate hunting lodge in DeBary, Florida. The lectures will focus on Florida, southern, or Victorian history. Other subjects may include architecture, historic preservation, or other related themes. They are free to the public and are offered the third Saturday of each month at 2:00.
DeBary Hall is a place where the rich visited to relax and enjoy the Florida weather each winter in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Often traveling up the St. Johns River, the visitors indulged in leisurely activities such as hunting, fishing, swimming in the vast cool springs, and sitting on their verandas enjoying a cool drink while they relaxed, read, or caught up on their gossip.
