The Beaches Museum will host an Opening Night Reception for the history exhibit Neptune Beach: A Cool Place to Live on Friday, November 15, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

Since Neptune Beach was first planned in the 1880s, it has attracted people seeking a beach lifestyle and developers doomed to disappointment.  Neptune Beach: A Cool Place to Live provides not only an opportunity to reminisce about these people but also to explore the stories of local landmarks, from the train station(s) to Pete’s Bar. The exhibit will highlight the attempts to build Neptune Beach – some successful and others, not – and its identity as told through photographs, artifacts, and the personal accounts of those who have lived there.

The Neptune Beach: A Cool Place to Live Opening Night Reception is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. The exhibit will be on display from November 15, 2019 to March 1, 2020.
