A Word From Our President
Deborah Frethem and her actors made our Museum General Meeting a very enjoyable experience. We had a great turn-out and all enjoyed the “goodies” the Board provided.

HUMAN SUNDIAL (SUNCLOCK) UNVEILING
On Saturday, October 9th at 11 a.m., the human Sunclock, donated by the Gulfport Historical Society was unveiled at Veteran’s Park (corner of Shore Blvd. S. and 54th St. S.). It is spread out on the ground in Veterans Park (corner of Shore Blvd. S. & 54th Ave. S.). When a visitor stands in the middle, their shadow will cast on a given number which tells the time.
The "clock" presents a quote from Florence Fussell, granddaughter of our founder, James Barnett (and wife Rebecca Slaughter Barnett), with many of Florence’s family members from children to great-grand children attended.
