THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
“The History of the Hermitage: From Nudist Colony to Artist Colony,” with Patricia Caswell, Hermitage co-founder and program director, is Monday, January 27, noon, at the Manasota Beach Club, 7660 Manasota Key Road, Englewood.
The 1907 cottage on the beach was rotted and rusted in the 1990s. It took a diverse team of caring folks to save it from the elements. Beach Club owner Buffy Crampton will add to the story as Caswell tells backstage tales—from pioneers to Pulitzers. The fee, which includes lunch, is $25.
