Turner Bungalow Restoration Project
The Turner bungalow was moved from 801 S. Fort Harrison in downtown Clearwater to Heritage Village in January 2014. The historic structure was the home of Alfred Cleveland and Amber Clark Turner and remained in the family throughout its history. The 1915 home is of the distinct Florida vernacular bungalow style of that time period. Heritage Village is seeking donations to restore and preserve the historic value of the structure, providing visitors the opportunity to enjoy and learn from this important piece of Clearwater’s history and the history of Florida vernacular architecture.

Speaking of History Lecture:
“Fly Balls and Flights of Fancy: A Century of Spring"
Sunday, May 11 at 2 p.m.
Training in Pinellas County and Commercial Aviation throughout the World”
Presenter: Mr. Jim Schnur
Two important events along the Pinellas peninsula reshaped local sports history and travel throughout the world. On January 1, 1914, the St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line began service as what many historians have regarded as the first regularly scheduled airline service using winged aircraft. Flights operated into the month of May 1914. During the spring of 1914, the St. Louis Browns (the Major League Baseball franchise now operating as the Baltimore Orioles) brought the first regular series of spring training games to St. Petersburg and Pinellas County while playing at a field near Snell Isle in the Old Northeast. Schnur discusses these historic milestones and places them within the broader context of Florida history. Presented by the Pinellas County Historical Society.
