Meetings & Conferences
If you and your group can't visit Historic Palm Cottage, the oldest home in Naples and the home of Naples Historical Society, let us bring Naples history to you. Our Speakers Bureau can provide an information-packed presentation at a length of your choice, or by showing our 24-minute, Telly award-winning oral history project overview film. As the central voice of Naples history, we have two presentations: 1) An introduction to Naples history; or, 2) An overview of the challenges of preservation in Naples.
If a walking tour of the Old Naples Historic District fits your groups' needs, contact us to discuss either partaking in a regularly scheduled public walking tour or setting up a tour specifically for your group. Request a speaker or discuss tour needs by calling 239-261-8164.
