February 2, 2022 – Two exhibits are now open and will be on view through the end of the month at the Sanibel Historical Village.
February is Black History Month and pictures and texts describing the Black pioneer experience are on view in the Caretakers’ Cottage. Artifacts and photos reflect the family, work, and social lives of members of the Gavin, Jordan, Walker, and Burns families, as well as other Black Sanibel islanders.
In case anyone could possibly forget, Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 14th of February. The Historical Village is highlighting the lives of a number of historical Sanibel couples. Look for the red frames in each building. Also on display throughout the Village is a collection of beautiful and humorous antique valentines. Come and bring your valentine!
