Join Rodney Kite-Powell, director of the Touchton Map Library at the Tampa Bay History Center, for a preview of their newest exhibit. Kite-Powell leads this behind-the-scenes tour of “From Outpost to Statehood: The Florida Territory,” which utilizes maps from the extensive TML collection to show how Florida transitioned, in 1821, from a Spanish colony to a U.S. Territory, becoming the 27th state in 1845.

Archives Week is presented by the City of Tampa. Programs are free, but space is limited.
