3 To Know: Historical Society promotes Benarroch, more


1. Museum talk and lunch

“Just Friends” met at the Yacht Club in September for a monthly luncheon.

The club enjoyed a presentation by Pat Rutledge, the chief executive officer of the Marco Island Historical Society. This group is responsible for the creation of our award winning Marco Island Historical Museum. The goal was to preserve the history of Marco and pass it on to future generations. 

The museum has been recognized as a 2021 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award winner and named among the top 10 percent of attractions worldwide.

Rotating exhibits and the gift shop provides reasons to visit often. Five lucky attendees won a copy of Austin Bell’s new book, “The Nine Lives of Florida’s Famous Key Marco Cat.”
