DUNEDIN – The Dunedin Historical Museum will host its 18th annual History Comes Alive event on Saturday, Jan. 11, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the historic Dunedin Cemetery, 2400 Keene Road.

There will be seven actors who will portray historic figures who are buried in the cemetery. The historic figures include the man who was fire chief when the 1923 LaFrance Fire Truck arrived on the Atlantic Coast Railroad Station in Dunedin; William Smith, soldier from Dunedin who was stationed at Fort Brooke and Fort Harrison during the Seminole Indian Wars; Robert and Persis McDougal, residents of Victoria Drive; Grace Nigels, one of the area’s first teachers; Fred Emerson, an early pioneer and one of the city’s first residents to play the “new” game of baseball; and the special guest of the day, “The Witch of Dunedin,” Captain Kate.

Visitors may chat with these individuals and look at photos, family scrapbooks and historical artifacts that were used in their lifetime. The original 1923 fire truck will be on display in honor of the Dunedin Fire Department’s 100th birthday. Additionally, a soldier’s campsite from the Seminole Indian War and a re-created vintage Boy and Girl Scout campsite will be on display, there will be an area to try on reproduction vintage clothing, and regularly scheduled half-hour tours of the entire cemetery will be available, which include stops at historic gravesites and a stone rubbing demonstration.

Members of the Dunedin Museum who bring their membership cards are free, and other visitors may attend for a $4 donation to benefit the museum. Call 736-1176.
