Remembering the Rod & Gun Club
January 4 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for a free reception celebrating the history of the Rod & Gun Club in Everglades City!
About the Exhibit
This exhibit celebrates the rich history of Everglades City – the birthplace of Collier County – by exploring the evolution of the landmark Rod & Gun Club. Originally a general store and post office that hosted the town’s first school, the Rod & Gun Club would later welcome movie stars, gangsters, rock musicians and half a dozen U.S. Presidents. Step back in time as we trace the roots of this world-famous fishing lodge to its beginnings as the site of first permanent pioneer homestead in Southwest Florida.
