Notes from the Museums: Mermaids

The Mermaid Trail festivities on Saturday, February 20th will take trekkers to the 1885 Depot and adjoining Countryman One Room School House on Russell Street and, also, to the May-Stringer at the top of the Jefferson Street hill at 601 Museum Court. 

The Brooksville Main Street program started the fun way of touring Brooksville. The brass, mermaid figurines have have been given names. For instance, Mermaid Arcelia lives in the rafters of the Depot and her sister Mermaid Maridith has a place of honor in the gazebo at the May-Stringer. A lovely collection of Mermaid memorabilia can be found on the third floor of the  Museum. Along with Mermaid history starting in 1947 you will also be able to view photos of Weeki Wachee Springs before it became Florida’s first roadside attraction.

By the way, it is quite possible that a live Mermaid may join Maridith in the gazebo on Saturday!
