Life on Henderson Creek in 1898
This presentation will provide a glimpse into life as a pioneer in the Little Marco community just before the 20th Century. It
is based on the diary of F. Watts Hall, who was the school teacher from 1898-99. Excerpts from the diary are supported by nautical
charts, historical images and discussions with descendants of the Kirkland and Carroll families who were living on Henderson Creek
in 1898. Ray Carroll, Cindy Carroll, and Chris Durfee will recount these stories and can authoritatively answer questions about what
life was like on Henderson Creek over the years.
