Historic Preservation in Charlotte County

Historic Punta Gorda Train Depot

The Lemon Bay Historical Society will hold its January public program at 7 p.m. on Tuesday the 23rd at the Historic Green Street Church Museum at 416 W. Green Street in Englewood.

Gene Murtha, President of the Punta Gorda History Center and Margaret Bogartus, President of the Punta Gorda Historical Society will give a power point presentation about the dedicated efforts and wonderful successes made in the name of historic preservation in Charlotte County.

They will discuss the history of the beautifully preserved Train Depot as well as the Woman’s Club which opened in 1925 and was at one time the area’s first community library. They will also talk about History Park, a unique collection of historic buildings with a past including the Maxwell Price House. Price was an architect best known for designing the Punta Gorda jail house, just to name a few.

Find out the background and identity of the oldest building in Charlotte County. Audience participation is always welcome.
