About This Event

Join museum director Michael Perkins for the last event in this series, as he reviews the seminal events that shaped Central Florida history from the Civil War to the present. With the arrival of Disney, Central Florida became an international tourist destination. Hosting 60 million visitors each year is no easy task, and the area struggled with transportation and infrastructure woes.
