A Short History of St. Teresa

7 pm- 8 pm   Free & Open to The Public. Refreshments Available Before Lecture.

St. Teresa has been enjoyed by generations (as many as 6) of North Florida and South Georgia families. Much of its early history has been lost or is available only through private family records. Ed will utilize maps, letters, newspaper articles, photographs, local histories, deeds and other legal documents to trace the origin and development of this special community. Beginning with the Spanish explorations, Ed's review progresses to the establishment of the community in 1873 and continues to the present day.  He will describe the lengthy travels of early St Teresa families by train, boat and wagon bringing cows and chickens for their summer stay a St Teresa. Newspaper accounts during the early periods are particularly enlightening and entertaining.

About the Speaker:  Ed Moore, a Tallahassee native, graduated from Leon High School in 1958, FSU in 1961 and University of Florida Law School in 1964. He practiced law and engaged in business in Tallahassee for over 50 years and has been retired for the past several years. Ed and his family have spent much of their time throughout the years at St Teresa. Ed's first summer at St Teresa was 1941 and he has missed only a couple of war years since that first summer. Ed's extended family dates back to the founding of St Teresa.
