water natural beauty climate opportunity the same irresistible qualities that we appreciate in Sarasota County today have appealed to people for thousands of years it may be difficult to imagine those earlier times as our cars whisk past modern office buildings condominiums and shopping malls still many images of Sarasota County's rich heritage remain preserved in historic and archaeological sites and natural wonders saved for future generations these reflections of the community's past tell a story of native people pioneers entrepreneurs and artists who combed Sarasota County home and shaped the community we know today a place described as unique and special Native Americans inhabited Florida at least 10,000 years ago the land was wider drier and cooler covered with Prairie like vegetation archeologist Marion Ami most Floridians today are from other states and other places they're surprised to find out that Florida's been inhabited since about 10,000 years ago it was just at the end of the last ice age the ice was still locked up in the ice sheets of North America the Everglades rivers creeks ponds and swamps we associate with the Sunshine State did not exist Florida had sinkholes cenotes perhaps springs and that's where the water was for example in the Myakka River and he's Sarasota County there's a place called deep hole and deep hole is a deep hole and that may have had an early spring in it the Myakka River is just one of the places where Paleo Indians lived warm mineral springs and little salt springs in the southern part of Sarasota County preserve important evidence of prehistoric human life there's evidence of the oldest human burial in eastern North America was excavated in the early 1970s for more mineral springs 8,000 years ago they were cave environments and early man and early animals congregated around these water sources today more mineral springs a health retreat with refreshing continuously flowing water is a National Register of Historic Places archaeological site archeologists say evidence left behind in this region 5,000 years ago during the Archaic period speaks volumes about its terrain animals and inhabitants we have the environment we have today in Florida sea level rose rivers and creeks rose and mangroves begin to grow the Indians hunted and fished perhaps seasonally moving into the Myakka River Valley may be hunting deer in the fall and the nuts for the acorns were following the deer followed the falling acorns and the Indians followed the dew shell middens found throughout Sarasota County reveals stories about the lifestyle survival skills and determination of these early inhabitants all me stands in the cut away of a midden preserved at historic Spanish point it's listed in the National Register of Historic Places ate shellfish and fish possum raccoon deer all kinds of birds huge shell middens grew up if you think about shucking oysters having oysters on the half-shell you know what it looks like when you finished a great dinner it's just a pile of stuff and so the Indians piled this up middens and burial mounds can be found near areas where there was an abundant supply of water and food from Indian Beach to Manasota Key Spanish point to Myakka County it doesn't have evidence of our Native Americans in the Native Americans could live on the best land there was because they had the Pick of the land the vibrant cultures of Florida's Native Americans were lost forever as European explorers began the campaign to conquer the new world they brought diseases with them measles mumps chickenpox smallpox to which the Native Americans had no immunity by the early 1700s the few who survived disease were enslaved some migrated away and others converted to Catholicism ensuring their freedom a society that in the southeastern United States and Florida for over ten thousand years just crumbled and fell apart it was a disastrous end to a once marvelous marvelous culture as Florida's Native Americans died out other tribes primarily the creek and Miccosukee from the Carolinas Georgia and Alabama were driven into the peninsula by expanding European settlement they collectively became known by whites as the Seminoles runaway slaves and free blacks often joined the Seminoles or created their own settlements Florida's Peace River frontier describes one such community fleeing conflicts of the war of 1812 they settled in the Sarasota Bay Area the region from Tampa Bay to Charlotte Harbor including Sarasota Bay had a reputation as a haven for blacks a substantial farming settlement prospered for several years until it was destroyed by military forces whose mission was to capture runaway slaves in an ongoing effort to remove Seminoles from Florida the United States fought three Seminole Wars the military established fort Armistead in 1841 on the shores of Sarasota Bay near present-day indian beach the journal entry of a soldier describes conditions at fort Armistead the encampment has 600 soldiers 100 Seminoles awaiting deportation living conditions are difficult some soldiers are suffering from fever dysentery the fort was abandoned after just one season in 1842 Congress passed the armed occupation act to encourage settlement on frontier lands but there was a catch the new title holders had to stay five years and fight off any others who claimed the land it was occupied by Spanish fishermen who were not citizens it was a hide by Seminoles who had no rights whatsoever and their slaves who lived with them dr. Janet Snyder Mathews Florida's state historic preservation officer describes the first white settlers in Sarasota County Mathews is at the restored Guptill house at historic Spanish point where one of the early pioneer families settled they were primarily Tallahassee people entrepreneurial people with slaves William Whittaker and his brother Hamlin's now now was a territorial legislature and a lawyer were the first people to come as American settlers onto Spanish fishery sites Whitaker crossed the Manatee River in 1843 and set up his homestead on yellow bluffs overlooking Sarasota Bay his home was near the Bayou that bears his name cattle is a really important part of this story whereas the Whitaker's had cattle citrus the cattle industry was one of the largest industries in the 1850s other cattlemen moved to Florida they joined William Whittaker to run herds in the Myakka River according to family history one day while riding the cattle range Whittaker heard a noise in the thick bush it was a young runaway slave from North Carolina named Jeffrey balding the Whitaker's took care of bolding then purchased him like many slaves he remained with his former owners well after the Emancipation Proclamation made him a free man at the conclusion of the Civil War in 1865 fifty years of conflict in Florida finally ended opening the way for more settlement in the state Jesse Knight moved his family and cattle herd from Hillsborough County in 1868 he settled into an area known as horse and chase 20 years later it became known as Venice Knight family becoming the southernmost neighbors for the Webb family were people they knew really well and they were Florida crackers of many many generations and they picked Venice just because everybody around hoped that this water area would become like the Venezia in Italy the community of old Myakka predates the Civil War and has its origins in cattle ranching john crowley arrived in the 1880s he played a significant role in the development of the community as a farmer cattleman and blacksmith the Methodist Church built in 1886 is still used by worshipers today it's a prime example of how ongoing stewardship and care by community residents protect historic structures and keep them in use one little Sarasota Bay another family established their homestead John analyzed a web left New York in 1867 for a healthier climate they found that on a midden overlooking the bay the web's called their new home spanish point they had a family of grown children a labor force and they came they knew how to plant crops and of course their transportation was the water the waterway was their i-75 the web´s had their own citrus packing plant and chips citrus and vegetables and their own schooners to Key West and Cedar Key to supplement their income they took in boarders of what they called the Webb winter resort the beginning of Sarasota County's tourism industry historic Spanish point was the first site in Sarasota County listed in the National Register of Historic Places other pioneer families settled mostly along the coasts of Sarasota and little Sarasota Bay's Lemon Bay the bayous and creeks that flowed into them the reason there were no real roads boats were the chief mode of transportation for people and supplies these early pioneers were captivated by the beauty of the coast the bay and the climate it was a beautiful place but a rugged life Eliza Webb April 5th 1868 how I wish you were here today so that I could talk to you about our beautiful country instead of writing about it we think we shall never see frost here although a fire is very comfortable and very pleasant in a winter evening and in the summer there are only two or three hours in the day in which we have not a nice land or sea breeze the wind blows from the land in the morning and from the Gulf in the afternoon in fact I can't conceive a finer climate than this in 1885 a group of colonists mostly from Scotland arrived in Sarasota they were promised a new life in an idyllic place based on information from the Florida mortgage and investment company the Scots expected a city with paved streets housing stores and other amenities the Sarasota they found wasn't at all what they expected one of the colonists Alex browning got in his memoirs it was late afternoon when he landed at last arriving at destination Sarasota who everyone made by the other colonists as well as all the other natives for miles around including the Whitaker's Riggins Arby's talkers and tea tones of course there was much discontent being dumped like this in a wild country with houses the 11 tired and hungry one can imagine what it was like within a few months most of the Scottish colonists left Sarasota angry and disappointed most settled in more established communities and some returned to Scotland to protect company interests the mortgage company sent John Hamilton Gillespie to Sarasota in 1886 Gillespie began developing a town he built the DeSoto hotel for visitors a golf course for their enjoyment and the first railroad the railroad had originally been planned to run from Lakeland to Boca Grande only nine miles a track was laid from Bradenton to Sarasota when rail service began in 1892 locals nicknamed the railroad the slow and wobbly it lasted only a year but that was long enough soon the train was waving through the woods rattling and squeaking its winding Way between ditches excavated to raised a narrow gauge track above the ordinary level of the woods this had settled in many places making it rough ridin in 1902 Sarasota incorporated as a town Gillespie was elected mayor amenities such as an electric power plant and ice plant were introduced in 1903 ten years after the slow and wobbly stopped operating the seaboard airline railway was built connecting Sarasota to Tampa and the nation now newcomers had another way to travel to Sarasota County and people here had another way to ship goods north the trains tracks ended on a pier where fish and produce could be loaded easily at the same time white settled in a new African American community was beginning Louis Colson played a pivotal role in the development of over town Colson was an ax man with Richard Paulson's surveying party in 1884 they came to plant the community that became the town of Sarasota Colson and his wife Irene possibly the couple of Miss unlabelled Felix Pinard photograph purchased land in 1897 they donated a lot for the Bethlehem Baptist Church only the second church building in the town of Sarasota Colson was the pastor from 1899 until 1918 Leonard Reed arrived in Overtown in 1900 historian Linda Turner is standing in front of reeds home that has been rehabilitated and preserved the house is listed in the city of Sarasota's local Register of Historic Places he was just a gentleman and take the hat out open the door this you know he was always so correct the way he walked just the way he carried himself weed was hired by John Gillespie as coachman confidant and later the Greens keeper at his Golf Course in her book once upon a morning Neal Chaplin recalls meeting Reid and remembers the relationship between Leonard Reid and Colonel Gillespie the colonel and his wife took Leonard into their home Leonard became the constant companion and helper of the kernel intelligent ambitious with an inward pride that matched the Colonel's own Leonard learned the art of being a gentleman's gentleman Colonel Gillespie was more than just Linux and for you he was his friend advisor you know in the black community you have leaders he was a very positive leader in the southern part of town a visionary named Harry Heigl set his sights on developing an island known by several names clam Island muscle Island and little Sarasota Key heigl was active in the business community served as mayor and operated his own steamship service between Tampa and Sarasota he began promoting the idea of an idyllic beach development in 1907 along with two business associates heigl planted a subdivision on the north end of the key called siesta on the Gulf gradually locals began calling the entire island siesta key hyegyo hoping to lure newcomers and tourists to the key promoted it this way a haven of rest where the waves of water from big Sarasota past laughs on the long white clean beaches where the Gulf breezes blow purifying and refreshing we're in the beautiful tropical growth of the island you can lose yourself in the rapture of thought and the inspiration of soul the island paradise heigl envisioned was accessible only by boat until 1917 when a bridge over the bay opened on another barrier island to the south carl johansson planned his own beach retreat Johanssen who lived on the mainland in englewood built one of the earliest homes on Manasota Key in 1907 he called it the Hermitage listed both in the National and Sarasota County registers of Historic Places the building has been rehabilitated to serve as an artist retreat in addition to real estate and tourism agriculture and cattle continue to expand in Sarasota County another industry that emerged was the production of turpentine Sandra Terry my grandfather came here and he was a foreman in the turpentine industry in the inland areas the trees of pine flatwoods were tapped for SAP that was distilled into turpentine when the trees tapped out they were harvested for lumber a small community between Venice and Sarasota became a center for these industries the town was called Laurel at the rehabilitated Johnson chapel a National Register of Historic Places building longtime resident Sandra Terry remembers the turpentine quarters as it was called back then was a complete community we had a store it had a school and out of church and it had lots of families who worked and the Florida real estate boom peaked in the mid 1920s in Sarasota County the arrival of Bertha Palmer in 1910 helped set the stage as a woman she was unique among the many entrepreneurs who would discover the lands of Florida were ripe for development in Chicago Bertha Palmer the wealthy widow of businessman Potter Palmer written ad by JH Lord in early Sarasota developer boasting about Sarasota's Beauty intrigued she arrived with an entourage of family members Palmer fell in love with the area and purchased the bayfront house which she remodeled and named the Oaks she also bought other lands of the Webb family homestead wrapped around prehistoric mittens many of Palmer's walkways formal gardens reflecting pools and paths are restored and preserved at historic Spanish point on the estate were boat houses docks an electric plant a water system several groves poultry sheds and a home farm Palmer and her sons were savvy business people who knew how to expand their investments from 1910 to 1917 they acquired some 90,000 acres of land in today's Sarasota County holdings extended to be Ridge vamo Osprey Venice and along the Myakka River at a ranch called meadow sweet pastures she pioneered many husbandry practices commonly employed today including fencing with barbed wire and insect control through dipping in concrete vats to prevent tick fever population growth in the communities of Sarasota County dramatically increased several well-respected citizens who arrived in the decade shaped the destiny of boom-time Sarasota County notables such as dr. Fred Albee John and Charles Ringling and Owen burns in 1914 the small town of Sarasota incorporated as a city that same year Charles C & Thompson a civic and business leader in the white community planted a new area for African Americans at the time blacks lived in Overtown on the fringe of downtown they were encouraged to move to new town outside the existing city limits over the years new town became a self-contained community with the post office gas station barber shop grocery stores and pharmacy Overtown is a recent addition to the National Register of Historic Places over town grew up in fact the first blacks in fact this is where Jeffrey was this is where Leonard read was Lewis Colson they all were in this area right here in the Overtown area and then when it grew and it bloomed and it blossom and they heard about in 1914 the property in new town this new subdivision in fact it was to word new and town with the e on the end and so they end up going to new town buying property and then when they started investing money over here in new town in 1914 some of them said well I can buy a lot for $200 and a lot of them invested money and moved over there over town was still here just didn't have as many people and everybody was flourishing over a new town and it you know and so that's how the two get started land travel was difficult thus and roadways were vulnerable to flooding in the rainy season and to deep ruts at other times in 1915 voters in sarasota Osprey and Venice approved the $250,000 bond issued to connect the communities thick impenetrable Paul meadows made road construction tough however the situation changed in 1917 when African American inventor Henry C Webb patented a cutting plow it tackled the thick Palmetto roots and Trunks that covered Sarasota County using Webb's plow workers cleared the way for the construction of a nine foot wide asphalt world The Velvet highway as it was called opened in 1918 making Road travel between sarasota and Venice smooth and easy this road was later incorporated into the tamiami trail connecting Tampa and Miami in the period from 1910 to 1921 as communities grew several woman's clubs were formed at a time when communities were too small to support multiple cultural and civic organizations woman's clubs took the lead sarasota women instilled a sense of pride and weaved culture into the fabric of our County clubs were organized in Sarasota B Ridge Englewood and Venice Nokomis the Club sponsored concerts lectures poetry readings and after-school programs for children all of The Woman's Club started libraries most of which eventually became part of the Sarasota County Library System both the Sarasota and Lemon Bay women's clubs are listed in the national and Sarasota County registers of Historic Places the bee Ridge Woman's Club is listed in the Sarasota County Register of Historic Places Florida's great land bloom of the 1920s was the crest of a wave that began at the end of World War one in 1921 business leaders led a successful campaign to establish Sarasota as its own County rather than a part of Manatee County one of the leaders in real estate development was Owen burns he first visited Sarasota in 1910 on a fishing trip burned saw Sarasota's potential is much more than a fishing village he bought land from Gillespie becoming the largest landowner in the town of Sarasota he founded the Board of Trade and the first locally owned Bank Citizens Bank in addition he founded Burns Realty and burns construction company to further Sarasota's allure as a resort destination Burns built the upscale elver Nona hotel named for his wife he developed a wide range of housing from large homes to small starter bungalows such as burns court listing the 15 Mediterranean Revival style bungalows in the National Register of Historic Places served as a catalyst for the revitalization of the neighborhood Burns was one of Sarasota's most innovative developers in the 1920s he teamed with circus magnate John Ringling who had a winter home on Sarasota Bay together they undertook pants of development projects and they formed a kind of a non-trivial partnership because there are no patent papers even for the circus there's nothing but they agreed that they had common interests and genre they had the money to invest and Owen Burns owned a Realty company a dredge and fill company several other enterprises which made him the most active local developer Owen burns and John Ringling worked together to develop st. Armands key burns acquired the property in 1923 he sold it to Ringling in 1924 and together they created a development called John Ringling estates their vision was to create a resort with hotels golf courses upscale shops and a bathing pavilion Byrnes construction company prepared the land laid streets and sidewalks and built the bridge and causeway connecting the key to the mainland with great fanfare the development opened in 1926 st. Armands Key is listed in the National Register of Historic Places because of its planned landscape while John Ringling developed on the keys his brother Charles Ringling focused on the mainland that kind of thing that interested him was not the elite Metro resort that John and burns envisioned but he wanted to build for more ordinary people to have homes in the city as part of Charles development efforts he constructed the Sarasota Terrace Hotel in downtown Sarasota in 1925 he also provided land for the county courthouse designed by architect Dwight James bomb in the Mediterranean Revival style and listed in the National Register of Historic Places the courthouse was completed in 1927 and was recently rehabilitated Baum accepted the courthouse commission after completing the most ornate and unique structure built in Sarasota County John and Mabel Ringling's home Coty's on the restored kazan is part of the John and Mabel ring Museum of Art John Ringling saw the presence of a major art museum as an enduring cultural asset which would enrich the Sarasota community the collection of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces reflects Ringling's personality upon his death in 1936 the museum was bequeathed to the state of Florida the Cadiz on and Ringling Museum are both listed in the National Register of Historic Places many of the new residents of Sarasota County brought with them an appreciation for entertainment and for the arts Sarasota's theatre history began during the boom period the Edwards theater built by civic leader AV Edwards opened in 1926 nationally recognized artists such as Bill Rogers and the Ziegfeld Follies played there the restored theatre now serves as the Sarasota Opera House and is recognized both locally and nationally for its historical and architectural significance further south in Sarasota County internationally renowned New York surgeon dr. Fred Albee bought land in the Venice Nokomis area before long he owned almost 30 miles of golf and Bay property in 1925 all be hired eminent urban planner John Nolan to design the city of Venice that same year the Brotherhood of locomotive engineers looking for a lucrative investment opportunity purchased 30,000 acres from albey historian Dorothy korvac Brotherhood of locomotive engineers was basically what was a union and a pension fund for the railroad engineers and the retirement fund basically there was a self-insured retirement fund so they had lots of money the Brotherhood one of the largest and richest unions in the country retained all these city planner Nolan funded the direction of the organization Nolan designed a balanced city with separate areas for commerce industry agriculture and homes the Brotherhood's plan included many parks and called for northern Italian architectural design in all construction John Olin essentially invented city planning nine states the profession did not exist before he came on the scene and it was through his force of personality his work ethic that he really established planning City Planning as a profession in the United States if it weren't for the railroad probably none of these people would have come because there was no way to get here literally the Brotherhood advertised the Venice area the Union operated a model farm that grew a variety of crops they created a promotional brochure titled the soil that never sleeps the boom that caused the population to balloon in Sarasota County and the entire state was beginning to bust many say that the stock market crash in 1929 caused America's Great Depression but the bust in Florida actually occurred much earlier financial backing for most of Florida developments dried up in 1926 banks and businesses failed the Brotherhood pulled out in 1929 Venice became a virtual ghost town in the city of Sarasota some construction projects stopped and were never completed like John Ringling's dream of a ritz-carlton hotel on Longboat Key other grand plans remained on paper only without the turning of a single shovel times were tough there was no money even so in the southernmost part of the county another resort community was on the drawing board Englewood incorporated in 1925 began as a small fishing village on Lemon Bay and was settled by a few pioneer families Larry Evans fishing was the mainstay of this complete area tourism was afar second I would say and just about everybody in town that worked that wasn't a tourist from somewhere else was a fisherman the Boone plan for angle would called for a huge community center a country club and a golf course a beach casino with a swimming pool and palm-lined 100 foot wide boulevards throughout the town there were even plans for a six million dollar University and a 100-room hotel surveyors and real estate speculators swell the town's population to 600 the town couldn't provide any municipal services however and in 1929 was unincorporated angle would return to its roots as a fishing village Evans remembers those days that appeared that he built as a teenager even though it was the depression days I can make quite a bit of money catching trout I catch 100 150 pounds of trout a day and I was getting five and six cents a pound for them so you know that equates to quite a bit of money for depression days in Venice hoped for better days came in the form of an unexpected new member of the community the Kentucky Military Institute chose Venice for it's winter campus in 1932 the hotel Fanus built during the boom housed administrative offices classrooms and the library today it is a retirement home rehabilitated and listed in the National Register of Historic Places another institution that provided support during the Depression was the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1927 the County Commission gave John Ringling 160 acres of land at the County Fairgrounds the property became the winter quarters of the circus the presence of the circus stimulated the local economy through jobs support for businesses and tourism building of the facilities for the circus that did bring a lot of money and mr. bingley then was the largest employer here the local papers said the circus did not cure the depression but it did make it more interesting during the Depression the federal government created several agencies as part of President Roosevelt's New Deal at Myakka River State Park the Civilian Conservation Corps built cabins roads and bridges a pavilion and planted trees the park was developed on 27 thousand acres making it Florida's largest state park it opened to the public in 1942 in the city of Sarasota the Works Progress and the Public Works Administration's constructed Bayfront Park on 37 acres the project included shuffleboard lawn bowling and tennis courts the parks Municipal Auditorium is listed in the National Register of Historic Places the building and the beautiful Hazzard fountain in front are now rehabilitated another WPA project was the Lido Beach casino architect Ralph Twitchell designed the casino which housed three dining areas of pool lockers showers and cabanas Twitchell's plan was influenced by the design philosophy of Frank Lloyd Wright the building was a concrete structure with large seahorse columns it was painted in tropical shades the casino opened to the public in 1940 and was the scene of swimming and diving competitions dooty pageants dances and fashion shows until its demolition in 1969 in 1941 the United States joined world war ii army airfields and bases were established throughout florida for the training of pilots and soldiers like the rest of the state the army air bases in the cities of sarasota and Venice introduced thousands of servicemen to the area and boosted the economy after the war many servicemen returned to make Sarasota County their home the beauty the color of the Gulf and Bay the quality of natural light and a welcoming cultural climate attracted architects authors and artists architecture played an important role in Sarasota's post-war development young modernist architects were drawn to a community open to artistic experimentation Paul Rudolph a young Harvard trained architect joined architect Ralph Twitchell's firm Rudolph and twitch over key leaders of the modern movement that became known as the Sarasota school of architecture the new style was a dramatic departure from the Mediterranean Revival theme that dominated the boom period architect Tim Siebert describes the new method he used to design the Dickerson house it was recently rehabilitated and is listed in the Sarasota County Register of Historic Places this house you're never quite sure where the house and the outdoors begins we also learn to use everyday materials in this particular part of the world we took plywood architecture is just one dimension of Sarasota County's cultural heritage authors who were drawn to the area included novelist McKinley Cantor who won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel Andersonville and John D MacDonald best known for the Travis McGee mystery novels there's been wide community interest in the visual arts since John Ringling opened his Museum of Art in 1930 and started an art school that became the Ringling School of Art and Design artist Tilton leach came to Sarasota in 1931 to teach at the Ringling school 16 years later leach and his wife opened their own art school in Sarasota the whole town was really built on art John Ringling was the first one who came here and gave that wonderful museum to the state which also attracted many artists to come here so the whole economic impact of the Arts was very important during the early years that we were and even developers used art they always had art shows that their new condominiums and the banks used are Syd Solomon came to Florida to convalesce after a World War two injury while visiting Sarasota he decided to stay other artists like Helen Sawyer and her husband portrait artist Jerry Farnsworth moved here for health reasons as well they built a home on Bay Island at the north end of siesta key Louis part with Tracy one of the earliest women painters of abstract art established a small artists retreat in Inglewood photographer Joseph Steinmetz visited Sarasota in 1941 in hopes of restoring his son's poor health the family stayed after the boys quick recovery for 20 years he photographed the circus the casual Florida lifestyle and buildings designed by architects associated with the Sarasota School of Architecture Steinmetz captured the 1950s lifestyle of Florida through his photography the comfortable environment and quality of life caused a population boom in the late 1940s and 50s more residential neighborhoods sprang up in Venice a new subdivision called South Venice opened further east in 1959 the general development corporation created north port when the Florida's largest cities and geographical area residential lots were often sold to northerners sight unseen for retirement or as an investment as Northport group civic groups were organized and Bank stores and churches were built north port is now one of the fastest-growing cities in the state in the late 1950s North port was incorporated at the same time Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus left its Sarasota winter quarters and within a few years moved to Venice residents enjoyed winter season shows and the attention the city received performers moved their families from Sarasota and called Venice home the Clown College an important part of the circus training program was established in Venice in 1969 and remained in the community for 25 years as a result of deteriorating railroad tracks the circus left the area in 1992 after nearly 70 years in residents the greatest show on earth pulled up stakes in Sarasota County the circus museum that opened in 1948 at the John and Mayville Ringling Museum of Art continues to preserve circus history four years later in 1952 Cecil B DeMille movie the greatest show on earth premiered at the Florida theatre formerly known as the Edwards theatre filmed in Sarasota the previous year with thousands of extras the movie won the Academy Award for Best Picture the Sailor circus began in 1949 as an extracurricular activity for Sarasota high school students for over 50 years young performers preserved the circus tradition through the greatest little show on earth art and culture have always been an important thread in a historical tapestry of Sarasota County there is a permanent connection to the Native Americans hi in years and first families whose influences remain strong and evident today their hopes and dreams triumphs and sacrifices made the communities of Sarasota County where they are today unlike any other place in the state it is up to us to build on the foundation laid by the early pioneers preservation is an ongoing process the lasting benefits that result from the efforts of individuals groups and government agencies to protect structures and stabilize the terior rating neighborhoods cannot be underestimated not only is it interesting to learn about the people that actually built the community but there's in Venice particularly there's a built environment that today is still defining the way people relate to each other and to their community the people who were here in the 19th and then the 20s those people are the foundation of Sarasota County they built this place they made it what it is today it wasn't the people who came in and built a nice glass buildings because way back then if those roads had been carved out and people had worked hard on what they were doing we wouldn't have this nice place now for people to enjoy and we need to we need to remember our foundation and we need to honor it as we go back in our history what we really find is that there are many voices and many cultures the more we look into the past with real documentation the more we discover that we have always been many people as a community of many voices it is critical that we continue identifying important physical evidence of history and be proactive in pursuing a plan of action for protection in doing so we will remember our roots find our place and relevance and history then become enriched empowered and enlightened together we can make an impact water natural beauty climate opportunity and now culture they are the ties that bind people throughout Sarasota County's history as reflected in carefully preserved landmarks in natural areas the legacy of past generations serves as a challenge to the present to sustain a sense of place foster a respect for heritage and create lasting reflections for those who follow want to learn more about our local history visit historic places join a historic organization get involved with programs that preserve our historic resources seabirds flop hi across just another day in service all along time just drizzle and freddie service and I've seen No sunset time grab a seat drink some
