Tampa Bay: The Site of the First Attempted European Settlement in North America

Author James MacDougald uses rare Spanish maps from the early to mid-1500s as compelling evidence that the first European colony established in North America was in fact the Tampa Bay area.

Find out how McDougald came to this conclusion during the Nell Ward Lecture at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 16 in the Touchton Map Library.

Free, though registration is required.
