The 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon's landing is a fitting time to reflect on Florida's dynamic culture, rich diversity and economic prosperity and with recognition that five flags have flown over Florida in as many centuries, while also being the home to Native Americans for at least 12,000 years.
Many artists and authors have come together to pay tribute to this monumental landmark in our state's history. Christian Louis' Florida inspired perfume, Jane Davis Doggett's modern silk tie and scarf inspired by the Spanish coat of arms, Guy Harvey's official Viva Florida 500 tee shirt; these are just a few of the many treasures available in Florida's History Shop.
Come celebrate and enjoy Florida's 500th anniversary with many of these great books and products designed expressively for the occasion.
