The Putnam County Historical Society will host a Bronson-Mulholland House Renovation Celebration on Friday, May 30th at 5:30 P.M. at the Bronson-Mulholland House, 100 Madison Street, Palatka. The event will celebrate the recent renovations to the Bronson-Mulholland House by the City of Palatka in cooperation with the Society and funded by a State of Florida Historic Preservation Grant. The ceremony will feature remarks by Mayor Karl Flagg and guided tours of the House and Museum. Refreshments will be served in the dining room. All Society members are urged to join us for this celebration of the most recent "face lift" to our House. Please invite a friend to come along for the event.

TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP

It's hard to believe that another year has passed and time has come to renew your Society membership again. We will begin sending renewal notices in June. Individual memberships are only $10.00 and family memberships only $15.00. Please help us to continue the important work of preserving and interpreting Putnam County history by renewing your membership. We would also encourage you to reach out to family and friends, and invite them to become members. Our membership is vital to our continuing efforts to share our rich history with the community and visitors.
