“Pensacola: Florida’s Second City” will be on exhibit in the Touchton Map Library’s Saunders Gallery starting on Oct. 5 at the downtown Tampa museum.

“Pensacola is often forgotten, or at least downplayed, when the list of important Florida cities is discussed,” said Rodney Kite-Powell, director of the Touchton Map Library. “We hope this exhibition will teach our visitors about Pensacola’s place in Florida’s history.” 

According to the center’s web site: “The new exhibit in the History Center’s Touchton Map Library will feature more than two dozen maps, illustrations, promotional booklets and other historical items tracing Pensacola’s past, from its first attempted founding in 1559 through its time as the capital of West Florida, its role as an important shipping center, through its current place as both tourist destination and home to a key U.S. military base.”

 “Pensacola: Florida’s Second City” will be on exhibit in the Touchton Map Library’s Saunders Gallery through Sunday, April 12, 2020. For more information, go to the Tampa Bay History Center web site.
