Journey Stories

Journey Stories, a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian, opens at the Polk County History Center on Friday, Dec. 6. The exhibit is on display through Saturday, Jan 4 and is made possible through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council. Journey Stories, from the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit program “Museums on Main Street,” explores how our ancestors came to America – a central element of the personal heritage.

The History Center also opens Polk County Journeys, a complementary exhibit focused on influential residents and visitors to Polk County who helped shape the community’s history and heritage. Polk County Journeys includes historic postcards from the History Center archives and entries from the Journey Stories postcard competition, created by local children.

Journey Stories is made possible at the Polk County History Center by the Florida Humanities Council. Journey Stories is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
