Asolo Theater
Historic Preservation
This week we explore the beautiful ways Floridians are preserving the historic structures in our area. We'll go inside an 18th century Italian theatre, that has called Sarasota "home" for over 50 years. And we'll head to Polk county for a trip down memory lane, where Elvis Presley and Judy Garland were known to stop by. Then Larry Elliston takes us back to St. Petersburg's "yesteryear" to show us how what's old is new again.

On the Radio

Ringling Hotel
Preserving Historic Places

Occasionally, we hear about a building under dispute because it has historic value to some people but another group of people wants to tear it down. The Belleview Biltmore and Sarasota's Riverview High School are two recent examples - one was saved, the other will soon be gone. But the question remains: why does historic preservation matter?
