Florida Stories

Walking piece details

Florida’s history stretches back to the last glacial period, with indigenous people settling the state over 14,000 years ago. European discovery and settlement by the Spanish occurred in the 16th century, nearly a hundred years before the English founded Jamestown.

This rich history is part of what users of our Florida Stories app will experience. Florida Stories is a free app with over thirty-five walking tours of communities across Florida. From Pensacola down to the Florida Keys, this app allows anyone to learn about some of Florida’s most historically rich and culturally diverse communities.

Florida Stories is designed to:

+ explore the history and heritage of Florida
+ increase knowledge about and appreciation of local communities
+ connect small communities on a statewide platform
+ build collaboration between community partners

Each tour’s scripts are designed and written by experts on state and local history. A professional narrator is used to record the scripts in a sound studio. The result is a high-quality tour that can be taken on-site or listened to from anywhere in the world.
