Event Description

Hiawatha Florida History Hour | Banning the Bottle: The Fight for Prohibition in Florida

Join Senior Curator of Education, Zach Zacharias, in the Root Family Museum Train Station for this fun and exciting program.

Perhaps nowhere did Prohibition fail so spectacularly than in Florida. It pretty much never was there. All the federal ban on alcohol, which ran from 1920 to 1933, managed to accomplish was to hand the lucrative booze business to criminals. Here was a thirsty tourist trade, local officials vulnerable to corruption, and miles of open beaches and coves. Learn about the little-known history of prohibition in Florida. Enjoy a selection of adult beverages and snacks after the program. 

Space is limited. RSVP online at MOAS.org or by calling the Museum at 386-255-0285.
