Special Exhibit: Remembering Carrabelle High School

The Carrabelle History Museum will present a grand opening celebration for their special exhibit, “Remembering Carrabelle High School”. The opening of this special exhibit was postponed from its original date last year due to COVID protocols. The grand opening celebration will start Thursday, July 1 at 10:00 am and will run until Saturday, July 31 at 5:00 pm.

The month-long exhibit will culminate with a special Carrabelle High School Reunion Reception at the Carrabelle History Museum on Saturday, July 31 from 2:00-4:00 pm. Guests will have a chance to share nostalgic stories of historic CHS. Alumni can video their favorite legends, tales and yarns. The original, old Carrabelle school bell, which has been beautifully restored, will be installed by volunteers of the Carrabelle History Museum. Light refreshments will be served.

The Carrabelle High School exhibit highlights high school sports trophies across the decades, starting from the 1930s, including football and girls’ basketball. Vintage cheerleader outfits, letter sweaters, stadium cushions, band jackets and cafeteria trays show the transition from Carrabelle Mullets to Green Devils and finally the Panthers. High school yearbooks, school team and activity photos, and school portraits are featured as well.

Carrabelle History Museum is located at 106 SE Avenue B, in historic downtown Carrabelle, FL. The museum and the exhibit are open Wednesday from 12-5 pm, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 am-5 pm and Sunday from 12-5 pm. There is no charge for admission but donations are warmly welcomed.
