The Matheson History Museum is pleased to welcome back local historian Alfred Awbrey to share his research into the fate of the buildings that once housed Union Academy, Gainesville’s first school for African Americans. Using original archival research, Mr. Awbrey will reveal details about Union Academy, the Carver Library, and the recreation centers that once occupied the block that have been lost for nearly 75 years.

For the safety of staff and attendees, capacity will be limited to 50 people and masks are required. Admission is free but registration is required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/union-academy-and-friends-tickets-196080621417.
