Description

From the "iron horse" to high-speed rail, track the evolution and impact of rail in Florida through railroad maps dating back to the 1850s.

Event Details

On exhibit in the History Center's Touchton Map Library Jan. 19 - July 14.

The arrival and expansion of the railroad changed Florida in many ways, from the profound to the mundane. A difficult three-day journey from Gainesville to Tampa was replaced with a comfortable day-and-a-half trip from Tampa to New York.

After World War II, traveling by car – and then by airplane – became more common.

As Florida’s cities become larger, more congested and more densely populated, the question of how much we will continue to rely on the existing railroad network, and what new lines, if any, we will add, has yet gone unanswered.
