The Carrabelle History Museum is extending their special exhibit about innovations and adaptations. This exhibit will now be on display through Sunday, November 19. There is no charge for admission, but donations are gladly accepted. The museum and exhibit are open Wednesdays 12-5 pm, Thursdays through Saturdays 10 am-5 pm and Sundays 12-5 pm.

This exhibit will explore innovations, inventions and adaptations that impacted life in Carrabelle in small and large ways over the years. Through time the people who lived here have modified existing tools and items to make them work better, repurposed them for an entirely new use or adapted to the changes around them. This display highlights tools of local native peoples, improvements in sponge diving equipment, innovations to shipbuilding in the 1800s, rebuilt tools for turpentining, changes in fishing net design, improvements in local, early building construction and more.

Carrabelle History Museum is located one block from the Carrabelle harbor, at 106 SE Avenue B, Carrabelle, FL. Funding in part by the Franklin County Tourist Development Council. For more information, contact 850-697-2141 or go to www.carrabellehistorymuseum.org.
