What if the houses in Apalachicola could talk? What stories would they tell? The Apalachicola Area Historical Society invites you to come find out, by viewing storyboards posted in front of about 30 homes and businesses between Saturday, May 7 and Saturday, May 21.

The storyboards, created by property owners, give historical facts and stories of past residents and neighborhood events.
Maps will be available online, on Facebook, and in hard copy format throughout town. Properties cannot be entered, but storyboards will be out in front at all participating locations. Please contact Pam Richardson at the historical society at (850) 653-1700 for details.
