First Florida Frontiers is a company of the Historic Florida Militia, Inc., a non-profit umbrella organization supporting re-created historic interpretive units and representing a number of cultures and time periods. FFF’s “museum without walls concept” has been supported in the past by Florida Department of State grants and Florida Humanities Council grants and is in demand by museums, libraries, parks, and other cultural institutions throughout Florida.
At First Florida Frontiers we actively recruit and train new members to join us in interpreting Florida’s long and fascinating history. Members are encouraged to research various time periods and become steeped in the daily life of people who lived in Florida or migrated here from other parts of the world. We pay particular attention to interpreting Florida’s first inhabitants and the early Spaniards who migrated here in the 16th century.
Past activities include participating in living history events such as –
- Drake’s Raid and Menéndez Landing, St. Augustine
- Old Florida Days, Collier County Museum, Naples,
- DeSoto Landing and 500 Years of the Soldier at the DeSoto National Memorial, Bradenton.
- 16th Century Cattle Camp at the Florida Cattlemen’s Ranch Rodeo, Kissimmee
In years past FFF has hosted events in Pinellas County
- Narváez Landing, 1528, Gulfport and St. Petersburg
- Menéndez Landing, 1566, Safety Harbor
- 16th Century Feast at Sacred Lands, St. Petersburg
