Curator Michelle Purvis and Exhibit Research Specialist Peter Cowdrey toured the Florida Historic Capitol Museum, which was originally built in 1839 and had been restored to its 1902 appearance. She talked about some of the changes that the building went through over the years and about some of the people that once served within its walls.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Tallahassee, Florida, from February 16-20 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
