Material culture at Kingsley Plantation

Material culture at Kingsley Plantation

Date
1981-03
Description
Seventeen black and white slides. Kingsley Plantation, originally built in the early 1800s by John McQueen, was a Spanish Florida cotton and indigo plantation run by Zephaniah and Anna Kingsley from the 1810s through the 1830s. It contains the only surviving tabby slave quarters. Tabby was a concrete-like substance made from oyster and lime. The plantation was a state park at the time of the images. (In 1989, the property was transferred to the National Park Service.) These images demonstrate the architecture and material culture of the plantation, as well the interpretation of the site by the Florida Park Service (FPS) through their interpretive signs. Images include the plantation, its kitchen building, barn, and a close-up of tabby. Also includes two images of FPS park signs.

Reception for the Minorcan Cultural Exchange Program at the Oldest House

Reception for the Minorcan Cultural Exchange Program at the Oldest House

Date
1983-10-06
Description
Fifty-one color slides. The Minorcan Cultural Exchange Tour, which ran from 10/6-13/1983, was created through an agreement between Florida Dept. of State and Minorca to celebrate Florida's two hundred year Minorcan heritage. First brought over as workers for a British plantation in the 1770s, most soon escaped the harsh working conditions and settled in St. Augustine. The tour was organized by Secretary of State George Firestone, the Bureau of Florida Folklife (Bulger, Belland, Loomis), Division of Historical Resources (Jean Lee and Paul Weaver) and the Florida Museum of History (Pat Wickman). With 140 performers and delegates from Minorca, the tour consisted of a series of public performances and emerged out of the smaller program, the Minorcan Heritage Week held in May 1983. The tour traveled from St. Augustine, to the University of Florida, to EPCOT, to Cypress Gardens, then finally to Miami for departure back to Spain. Some records for the tour can be found in S 1578, Box 3, folder 81.
