Cultural Council’s “History on the Streets” – April 8th and May 6th.
Friends and members of Historic Florida Militia provide a walking ‘timeline’ through the streets of St. Augustine to interact with our visitors, pose for pictures, and explain the history of the area to visitors of our city. This program is sponsored by the Cultural Council.
The Historic Florida Militia (HFM) is a non-profit umbrella organization supporting re-created historic interpretive units and representing a number of cultures and time periods.
Member groups receive a link to their group page or can have a group page designed for them. In addition, member groups in good standing are eligible for event coverage under the group’s insurance policy. Member groups can also arrange at minimal cost for rental of period appropriate canvas, furniture and cooking supplies.
HFM is a registered 501 c. 3. Non-Profit Organization.
As such, all of our member companies must be not-for profit also.
