[ARCHIVED] Hank Klein History Presentation: Leonard Destin

Leonard Destin

The Destin Library will host a presentation entitled "Leonard Destin: Destin's Founding Father" on Tuesday, January 20th at 5:30 pm. The presentation will be free and open to the public.

Seats will be limited for this presentation and interested individuals are encouraged to pre-register.

Destin historian Hank Klein will tell the story of Leonard Destin, the founding father of Destin. Florida, and how he sailed from New London, Connecticut to Florida in 1835. Hear about his adventurous life and why Destin is still tied to fishing and the sea.
