January 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Archaeologists from the Underwater Archaeology Department for the State of Florida (Division of Historic Resources) will be leading the Speaker’s Series Program hosted by the Carrabelle History Museum on Saturday, January 26, 10 am – 12 pm at C-Quarters in Carrabelle. They will be discussing the history of the Dog Island shipwrecks that were unearthed by Hurricane Michael.

Michael’s storm surge dredged up a handful of 19th Century ships that washed ashore Dog Island during the 1899 Carrabelle Hurricane. These old wooden ships now sit in plain view near the west end of Dog Island, which is located just 3.5 miles offshore from Carrabelle. Read entire blog post.
