March 14, 2017 Program

Plan on being at the Tuesday, March 14th program put on by the Museum at the Flagler Place, 201 SW Flagler Ave., starting at 7 pm.  The featured guest speakers will be the Hudson family, owners and long-time operators of the original Citizens Bank of Stuart.  They will speak about when Citizens started in Stuart in 1933 and evolved over the years, eventually to become Seacoast Bank.

Also get your annual Kiwanis Ornament for 2016. It is about the fascinating history of the Shark Industry in Port Salerno.

A new shipment just arrived at Stuart Heritage Museum of some of the more requested Kiwanis Ornaments.
They are: 2015 Kiwanis Park (Woodlawn Park), 2014 Stuart's 100th Anniversary, 2014 Veteran's Bridge and the Palm City's vintage Post Office. There are at least 10 of each but RUSH now, to get the ones you need. 

The Museum is in need of having accordion shutters placed at all the Museum's windows and doors to help protect the many priceless artifacts in case a hurricane comes across Stuart. The last 'near miss' of Hurricane Matthew was too close for comfort. Any donation for the shutters would be greatly appreciated. Send a check to: Shutters Donation, Stuart Heritage Museum, 161 SW Flagler Ave., Stuart, FL 34994 or bring a donation directly to the Museum. Many Thanks.

Alice L. Luckhardt's book "Stuart" with over 200 vintage photos is available at the Museum.

Sandy Thurlow's newest book "US Life-Saving Service - Florida's East Coast" is available for sale at the Museum.
