Fort Mose Founding Day
Fort Mose- Saturday, March 18, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Spanish Florida Governor Manuel de Montiano founded Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose sometime between March and September 1738. Fort Mose, as we know it today, was the first legally sanctioned free African American town in continental USA. This event recreates Governor Montiano’s proclamation extending freedom to Captain Francisco Menendez and his fellow militia men and establishing Fort Mose.  Following his proclamation, Franciscan Friar Don Joseph de Leon, assigned by the church to Mose, blesses the site.

There will be a scholarly presentation in the Visitors Center followed by a Middle Passage Remembrance Ceremony, honoring the countless thousands who were lost at sea or risked the journey south to Spanish Florida, in search of their freedom.

Admission into the park and event are free. $2 admission for Visitor Center / Museum

Grace & Grit Exhibit
World Golf Hall of Fame Ongoing Exhibit

The World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum officially unveiled its newest exhibition, “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years.” Located in the Museum’s Shell Hall opposite the Hall of Fame Member bronzes, the exhibit features golf’s greatest female champions spanning eight decades – from the 1940s to today.

As part of the exhibition’s opening, 1975 World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Kathy Whitworth cut the ceremonial ribbon and addressed more than 100 attendees during a question and answer session.

As 88-time LPGA Tour winner, Whitworth and several of her artifacts, including her Titleholders Championship green jacket (presented to the winner of this Major played at Augusta Country Club) are featured prominently in the exhibit.

“Words can’t express how exciting it is to see my name alongside some of the game’s best like Babe Zaharias, Mickey Wright, Patty Berg and Annika Sorenstam,” said Whitworth. “So many great memories surface when I walk through this exhibit and I am humbled to be part of its opening.”

“Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years” highlights the careers and achievements of 28 Hall of Fame Members and present-day Major Champions including the 2016 Rolex ANNIKA Major Award winner and current World No.1 player Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park and Lorena Ochoa.

Among the surplus of player memorabilia, the exhibit features unique artifacts including Ko’s wedges used in the final round of the 2016 ANA Inspiration. Other exhibit highlights include the personal expense report of Marilynn Smith, where she detailed all meals, lodging, and equipment costs from hundreds of golf tournaments. Also on display is Dame Laura Davies’ full-size U.S. Women’s Open trophy from 1987 when she captured the first of her four Major titles in an 18-hole Tuesday playoff, beating out fellow Hall of Fame Members Ayako Okamoto and JoAnne Carner.

The “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years” exhibition is open to the public in the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum. For more information, visit www.worldgolfhalloffame.org.

Museum Hours: Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Sunday, 12 – 6 p.m.
