Fine Feathers: How the Peacock Came to Winter Park
The WPHA is showcasing the history of peacocks in ancient cultures and weaving a thread to the colorful bird’s status today as the symbol of Winter Park in an all-new exhibit that opens Friday, September 10th, at the Winter Park Historical Museum at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market. The exhibit will close on March 31, 2011.  The exhibit traces the history of the peacock in ancient art, culture and religion; the appearance of the peacock in Louis Comfort Tiffany’s art; Tiffany’s influence on Dr. Hugh McKean and his wife Jeannette, and the subsequent importing of peacocks to their Windsong estate on Winter Park’s Genius Drive. A children’s corner will feature a peacock coloring contest and a brass rubbing of the peacock featured on the Winter Park city manhole covers.  Also offered is a history detective hunt that begins across the street in Central Park, taking children on an adventure throughout the park.

 

Mission:
The mission of the Winter Park Historical Association is to collect, preserve, promote and research the history of Winter Park and its surrounding area, and to share that history with the public through educational programs and operation of a museum.
