Journey Stories, at the Dunedin Historical Museum, is a project organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service.
DUNEDIN - The Dunedin Historical Museum is hosting the Smithsonian Institutionís exhibit, Journey Stories, through March 9.

Journey Stories is a Museum on Main Street project organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service. Journey Stories describes the path of immigration throughout the United States and how communities grew with individuals and families from various backgrounds.

This project is affiliated with the museumís recent grant award of $10,000 from the Florida Humanities Council.

Through the use of artifacts and historical information, the exhibit explains how individuals used various modes of transportation such as wagons, ships, and railroad to migrate to the various areas of the country. The display also details various occupations these individuals worked on when they arrived at their final destination.

The museum plans to add local history to the exhibit by planning feature stories by area residents from the oral history project. The museum also will be partnering with the Dunedin Public Library, the Dunedin Fine Arts Center, local public and private schools and the city of Dunedin for programs that will enhance Journey Stories.

The museum expressed thanks to the Florida Humanities Council for awarding the grant to the museum. Dunedin was only one of six sites awarded the grant in Florida. The council is located in St. Petersburg and assists institutions throughout the state with grants, exhibits, and historical scholar presentations.
