Join Senior Curator of Education and Curator of History, James “Zach” Zacharias, once a resident of the city, and discover this unique 2.5 square mile historic district. Later learn the Story of Port Orange and the Dunlawton Plantation where local historian and educator, Joe Vetter, will discuss this small Florida town which was founded after the Civil War by a Union Army surgeon and hundreds of newly-freed slaves.
