Invisible Lives Tours
September 14th | 10 AM – 4 PM | Visitors Center
Invisible Lives Tours: Stories of the Enslaved People Who Built Tallahassee is the first public program offered as part of the Tallahassee History & Human Rights project (THHRP). THHRP is an ongoing collaboration among community partners to tell a fuller story of local and regional history.
On September 14, three local museums will offer guided tours focusing on the lives of enslaved people who shaped Florida and the nation, both before and after emancipation. The goal of this public program is to share new research with the community and better integrate African American history into the interpretation of Tallahassee’s historic sites.
The schedule of Invisible Lives Tours will include:
- Goodwood Museum & Gardens, tours on the hour, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
- Tallahassee Museum, tours on the hour, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
- The Grove Museum, tours on the half-hour, 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Each site’s guided tour will last approximately thirty minutes, with time spent both indoors and outdoors. Please wear comfortable clothes.
Other community partners will provide information and additional resources at each site.
Admission to this program is FREE.

Bring your yoga mat and start the night with a Vinyasa Flow yoga class hosted by Premier Health & Fitness Center on Goodwood’s Center Lawn. And, don’t forget to visit the Rev Cafe for dinner, or just a drink, as they stay open late for this night of fun.
Working with KCCI and other community partners, Goodwood will be showcasing its giant checkers and chess set with a new interactive public art project. These will be incorporated into the reactivation and design of the historic roller rink.
Yard games: 4-8pm

September 27th | 6:30 PM Wine Reception |
7 PM Performance | Main House
Join us for a comedy set in a familiar time and place… a mansion in the Roaring ‘20s!
This one-act play begins when a couple encounters a thief in their home. Be astonished by the audacity of a thief and see if you understand his strange logic in this adventure through Goodwood’s Main House.
The Main House provides not just a stage, but a live 360° experience as you follow the characters from room to room. Instead of the set changing behind the actors, the actors move from one set to another and the audience follows. The Main House Museum provides the ideal background, as both the play and museum are set in the 1920s.
A wine reception and a unique “stage” make this a theatrical event to remember.
Limited to 25 seats per performance
