To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the present-day St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, a three-part lecture will be given to discuss early members of the congregation.
The lecturer will be Dave Eyler, the church’s historian.
The event should be of interest to anyone intrigued by the history of early Key West as the men and women of early St. Paul’s Church were among the founders of the city.
The ﬁrst section will identify parishioners memorialized in the building’s stained glass windows at the church, 401 Duval St. and begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1.
Attendees will walk or provide own transportation to the Sculpture Garden, located across from the Waterfront Playhouse at 407 Wall St. in Mallory Square. There will be a talk about former St. Paul’s parishioners honored at the Garden beginning at about 10 a.m.
The group will be then transported by a Conch Tour Train to the sexton’s ofﬁce at the Key West City Cemetery, where a walking tour to the grave sites of many of these former parishioners will be offered with a talk beginning about 11 a.m.
The tour is free and will end by 11:45 a.m.
The three parts will stand alone, but a better understanding will be obtained from attending all the tours.
