ST. PETERSBURG - From disappearing Green Benches to the modern Bayfront Center, explore the history that modernized the Sunshine City through Happy Hour with the Historian - an evening of wine, words and wisdom – Thursday, May 8, at the St. Petersburg Museum of History.

Journalist, author and historian Jon Wilson will take you from post-war prosperity in the late 1940s to the City’s struggle with integration in the 1960s.

Wilson will discuss his book, “The Golden Era in St. Petersburg,” and how the City used its old-school method of promotion to double its population while developing a split personality – aiming to be modern, but retaining a dated, rustic appearance.

After 36 years with the St. Petersburg Times and Evening Independent, Wilson is now a consultant with the Florida Humanities Council. He has authored “The Golden Era in St. Petersburg – Post War Prosperity in the Sunshine City” and co-authored “St. Petersburg’s Historic 22nd Street South” and “St. Petersburg’s Historic African American Neighborhoods.”

Happy Hour with the Historian begins at 6:30 p.m. The event features a full cocktail bar and a tasty sampling of St. Petersburg cuisine. Admission is a $5 suggested donation and includes viewing of the Museum of History’s new exhibits.

Presented by RBC Wealth Management – A Green, Henwood and Hough Investment Group, Happy Hour with the Historian is offered six times a year at the Museum of History.

The St. Petersburg Museum of History – celebrating its 92nd year – is located at 335 Second Ave. NE on the approach to The Pier.
