Invisible Lives Tours

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, 2019, 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 4:00 PM, last tour at 3:00 PM

  • Tallahassee Museum, tours on the hour, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, last tour at 3:00 PM

  • The Grove Museum, tours on the half-hour, 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM, last tour at 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.
