Estero Historical Society’s first presentation of 2022 is soon underway. On February 12th, journey back 10,000 years and meet The Calusa – People of the Estuary. Learn about Southwest Florida’s early yet advanced society; their interactions with other tribes and early Spanish explorers, their profound connection with our estuarine system, their disappearance from physical record, and ultimately, the significant discovery and preservation efforts of the tribe locally.
This free presentation, sponsored by the Estero Historical Society, will be given by local historian, Jacob Winge. A fifth generation Floridian, Mr. Winge has been presenting living history reenactments and other types of historical programs since he was twelve, becoming an expert while only in his twenties. In addition to his history expertise, Mr. Winge was selected as one of Gulfshore Business’ 40 under 40 in 2021 for his business contributions to the region. His presentations are known for their ability to bring history to life –perfect for audiences of all ages!
