What is Living History?

Living history seeks to educate visitors by interpreting how people lived in the past through demonstrations and interaction.

Our colonial programming depicts life in the early 19th century when Pensacola was a colony under Spanish rule. Activities include gardening, candle making, laundry and more.

Interpreters demonstrate activities that were part of the average working-class family’s daily life.  Activities include gardening, cleaning, mending, needlecrafts, musket-cleaning, and fire-starting.
