April 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Due to popular demand and social distancing restrictions, we are added a second presentation of the April “Third Thursday” lecture.

This presentation explores the rare combination of technology and tenacity that ultimately yielded the miracle of modern engineering known as the Tamiami Trail. An analysis of the machinery and materials employed as well as rarely-seen photos and firsthand accounts of the work will leave no doubt as to why the massive project was—at the time—compared to the building of the Panama Canal.

Seating is limited at the museum due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. Guests should arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the program or their seats may be given to others waiting on stand-by. Please use the RSVP forms below to reserve your seat at the museum.
