The Historic Hernando Preservation Society is offering a truly unique Harvest of History Tour at the historic Hope Hill homestead in Brooksville, FL on Saturday, November 3, at 2:00 p.m.
In 1835 William E. Hope and his family came from Liberty County, Georgia to settle the fertile soil of West Central Florida. They settled in what was known as Chocochatti, a former Seminole Indian settlement. They lived atop this hill until the homestead mysteriously burned down in the 1890s. The Hope Homestead site was excavated by a USF archeological team in 2004-2005 and unearthed many clues to its past.
A Seminole re-enactor will also be on site to tell his rich story of the Seminole Nation. The Miesch Family, the current owners of the property, will generously open their private museum. You will dine on Bison burgers and fresh roasted corn on the cob. You can view an arrow head display, observe flint knapping, as well as speak to individuals directly involved with the excavation. Get in touch with your inner archeologist and attend the Harvest of History.
The tour costs $20. Reservations are required.
