Viva Florida 500 Time Capsule at Edison Ford for the Month of May
May 5, 2013
The Lee County Viva Florida 500 Time Capsule will be on display in the Edison Caretaker’s House throughout the month of May along with Discovering Southwest Florida with Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, an exhibit featuring historic photographs and artifacts celebrating Southwest Florida’s history during the Edison Ford era.
The Lee County Library System in conjunction with the Florida Department of State has launched the SNAPSHOT Time Capsule project in honor of Viva Florida 500, a year-long commemoration of Florida’s 500th anniversary dating back to Ponce de Leon’s landing in Florida in 1513.
The items chosen reflect Lee County’s unique community and represent what future generations should know about Lee County. The SNAPSHOT Time Capsule will travel around Lee County until September 2013.
