Video History At Museum Today

Old Timers On Video - Southwest Florida History Saved

LABELLE, FL. -- Years ago, the city of LaBelle had a project to video tape many of the 'old timers' who told very interesting stories of life of years gone by. LaBelle Heritage Museum member, Pat Johnson has put them all on individual DVDs to preserve them. 

Everyone with an interest in seeing, hearing and learning of early, interesting LaBelle pioneers, can come to the Museum Thursday, April 11 between 11:30 and 1 pm. on Bridge Street in LaBelle.

"The videos are filed, safe in today's technology in the museum, but there is so much history, and so many interesting stories that need to be available to everyone - sitting at a computer - in their own home - or in book form," said Johnson. 

Ms. Johnson says, "This is a project that we, as today's residents, now have the opportunity to see, hear and write these stories - for future generations to try to imagine life so long ago!"

Pat will show clips of a number of interviews for a 'public showing' today. The goal is for residents to be aware that there are amazing stories and history of the area at the museum. There are stories to be written. For more information call Pat at 863-675-8335 or Nikki 239-564-2005
