Speaker Series: Ponce de Leon

October 21, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Popular local historian Jacob Winge will present his history program on Ponce de Leon to the Estero Historical Society from 9:30 – 11 a.m., Saturday, October 21, at the clubhouse at Country Creek Country Club, 21125 Country Club Drive.
Most everyone learned that Ponce de Leon was searching for the Fountain of Youth when he came to Florida, but it’s not quite that simple. A lot about Ponce de Leon is explained by how European society worked when he was alive in the late 15th – early 16th century.
Attendees will learn what motivated explorers of that period by attending this captivating presentation. They will also learn how de Leon interacted with the Calusa tribe in Florida and about his years as the Governor of Puerto Rico and colonial Governor of Florida.
Please register for this presentation in advance online.  EHS members pay $10 each and non-members pay $15 each. This fee covers the continental breakfast buffet which is served prior to the start of the presentation.
