AMIHS Launches YouTube Channel

In conjunction with the AMIHS Museum's new exhibit, the Historical Society launched a YouTube Channel that features dozens of oral histories from Island residents. Here is a small sample of what this channel has to offer. In this video, Ernie Cagnina talks about the Old IGA, which he ran from 1946 to 1994. This video is particularly interesting because it was filmed in 1991 and viewers can see inside the old grocery store before it closed only a few years later.

New Exhibit Opens

Renovations on the Anna Maria Island Historical Society Museum have been completed and the new exhibit will open on October 13, 2015. The new exhibit preserves the character of the original one, but is updated with new information and never before displayed objects. The new exhibit better preserves the objects and enhances accessibility. Visitors will now enter the museum through the front door and exit through the giftshop. Here are some before-and-after photographs: BEFORE The museum exhibit prior to renovations in August 2015. Photograph courtesy of Kathryn Rohlwing.
