Spirit Voices from Oldf Manatee Season VI

small.jpgSpirit Voices from Old Manatee is an outdoor drama and cemetery tour that premiered in 2011 as an original living history production. Through this program, the Manatee County Historical Commission fulfills its mission: “Preserving our Past to Enrich Our Future”, by educating the public about the lives of early Southwest Florida pioneers who settled this area. Thespians in period dress personify several of Manatee’s early pioneers interred at the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds. Their graveside dialogs are based on narratives from archives, descendents, diaries, military logs, books and legend. The program is an experience like no other, unfolding at the Old Settler’s House at Manatee Village Historical Park with a Victorian wake and continuing by torch-light “on the other side,” at the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds, as the sun sets.
