3rd Friday on 3rd Street: Blue Gold

Time: 6:00 pm til 7:00 pm

Location: Amelia Island Museum of History

Description: The Amelia Island Museum of History invites you to its next 3rd Friday on 3rd Street on Friday, April 20th at 6 p.m. This month's presentation features Jim Longacre discussing the history of indigo.

Sometimes called blue gold, indigo was one of the main cash crops grown on Amelia Island during its plantation period. Quite literally worth its weight in gold, indigo helped shape the history of entire regions and led to the deaths of countless slaves. Come learn more about its role in our history and the world at large.

Admission is free for museum members and $10 for nonmembers. For more information, contact Alex at 904-271-7378 ext. 102 or alexbuell@ameliamuseum.org.
