Description

Palm crafts designed by pioneers in Geneva, Florida, between 1850 and 1920. The crafts pictured include a State Fair award-winning palm hat, a fan, an unfinished necktie, a turtle toy with head and tail that move, a utility basket, and a finger trap.

Geneva is a community in Seminole County. The area was originally inhabited by the Timucuan tribe as early as 2000 B.C.E. Between 1765 and 1766, John and William Bartram explored the St. John's River including the area that would become Geneva, which was inhabited at the time by the Seminole tribe formed in the 1760s. New settlers arrived and settled in Harney Cove during the 1843-1845 period. Harney Cove was renamed Geneva in 1880.
