Curtiss Mansion Public Speaker Sylvia Gurinsky

Talks/Lectures
The growth of South Florida after World War I brought a new form of architecture, influenced in large part by Italy, Spain and other Mediterranean countries. Join history educator Sylvia Gurinsky for a look at the region's iconic 1920s Boom-Era Architecture - including the Curtiss Mansion. See how so much that was built during the Florida Land Boom matched the local climate then and has thrived since.
