Welcome to Colonial Pensacola! On this adventure, students will gain an understanding of the frontier nature of Spanish Colonial Pensacola and its development. We will tour this historic site and participate in these 3 activities:
1. What is it? Colonial Artifact Discovery: Students will be able to get up close and personal with several items that relate to life in the Colonial Period, drawing conclusions about life in early Pensacola and how it differs from today.
2. Colonial Survival: Learn what it meant to settle on the west Florida frontier – food, water, and shelter are essential! Students will learn colonial construction methods and receive a fire-starting and musket demonstration.
3. Colonial Occupation: What’s a settler to do? Learn more about colonial community and the different types of people who created it. This selection also includes a focus on candle-dipping. Participants will have the opportunity to take home their own Village made candle!
