Adams-Cobb Cultural Center opens March 21, 2015

The St. Lucie Historical Society welcomes visitors to a preview of the Adams-Cobb Cultural Center and “ A Colorful Cattle Culture” special exhibit on Saturday, February 21st from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The Center is located in the historic P. P. Cobb building at 100 Avenue A in Fort Pierce, and this special exhibit is held in conjunction with the Florida Cracker Trail Riders’ parade which begins at 10:30 in downtown.Historic Cobb Building

The Society’s newly acquired upstairs exhibition space chronicles the course of our waterways in shaping local history. The Adams-Cobb Cultural Center features maps, vintage photographs, drawings based on archeological findings, and other interpretive materials. These resources will provide the historical context for various future educational exhibits and programs about life along the Treasure Coast and its western reaches. Future programs will span various topics and times throughout the centuries—from the culture of early residents, the Ais Indians, through residents’ contemporary concerns for the environmental and economic balance of the Indian River Lagoon and its tributaries.

According to Jean Ellen Wilson, the Center’s administrator, St. Lucie Historical Society volunteers will man the Center, ready to provide answers to questions about the rich history of Fort Pierce and its surrounds. The Center itself will provide a central, high-traffic location convenient to visitors and residents who attend downtown functions and who may also seek directions to other cultural institutions on the Treasure Coast, including the St. Lucie County Regional History Center, the Backus Museum & Gallery, and Heathcote Botanical Gardens.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Society is pleased to collaborate with various public and private organizations in establishing the Center and is especially grateful to partner on this project with Alto “Bud” Adams Jr. and the Adams family. Mr. Adams, the patriarch of the Adams clan, and his family have made many generous contributions to the arts and cultural mainstays of our community. Mr. Adams’ commitment to preserving the P. P. Cobb building, which started life as a trading post in the 1870s, continues the family’s legacy of preserving local history. Bud Adams father, Judge Alto Adams Sr. was a history scholar, whose scope of pursuits in cultural studies are reflected in the titles, from standards to rare, in the extensive history section of the Adams Library.

Although the permanent collection of waterway history in the Cobb building is now a work in progress, the Society’s new exhibition space is scheduled for a grand opening on Saturday, March 21st. A future program at the Center in collaboration with the Arts and Cultural Alliance of St. Lucie County will be scheduled at a later date and will highlight the scientific research and photography documenting the interconnectivity of our lands and waters.
For more information on the Center, its programs or volunteer opportunities, please call Nancy Bennett, president of the St. Lucie Historical Society, at 462-1795 or Jean Ellen Wilson, Adams-Cobb Cultural Center administrator, at 332-3838.
