What’s Happening at Goodwood

Preservation Wine Walk

Friday, November 10 | 45:30 – 7:00 PM

Sip and stroll through Goodwood Museum & Garden’s beautiful grounds.

Enjoy a wide variety of wines that pair deliciously with the legacy of preservation at Goodwood. At each stop in the wine walk, attendees will be able to sample a new wine while listening to Goodwood docents share details and history about the different buildings, locations, and preservation projects on the museum’s 21-acres. Immerse yourself in the tapestry of preservation as you meander Goodwood’s grounds, glass in hand. This is a rare opportunity to experience local history in a fun, unique way, and is perfect for history lovers who savor a good wine (or wine lovers who want to expand their historical knowledge). Light hors d’oeuvres will be available. Must be 21+ to attend.

Race, Class, and Culture: Woke (or not) in the Progressive Era of Leon County

Fanny Tiers was one of a dozen or so northerners (and the only woman) who purchased Leon County’s former cotton plantations as winter residences.
