2019 Welcome Center Lecture Series: The History of the Flora-Bama
Admission:
Free admission.

The muse-like Joe Gilchrist is an extremely successful entrepreneur. A former high school chemistry teacher, experienced beverage manager and self-proclaimed American songwriting and music aficionado, in 1978, at the age of 36 he took over his boyhood friends' family's tiny package liquor store and lounge on the scenic Alabama-Florida State Line.

Join us on Tuesday, February 5 at 10am as Chris Warner tells the story of the diminutive watering hole started by the Tampary family in 1964, known simply as the "Flora-Bama Lounge & Package Store," over the next five and a half decades, amazingly, matured into the legendary, Last Great American Honky Tonk Roadhouse.
