Book signing Saturday at Baker Block Museum


Turpentining in the Florida Panhandle is the third book written by Julia Cadenhead as part of the Baker Block Museum’s history series.

HOLT, Fla., April 18, 2018–The Baker Block Museum will be hosting a book signing April 21 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Turpentining in the Florida Panhandle, by Julia Cadenhead, is the newest release in the museum’s series of local history.

She will be on hand Saturday to meet with visitors and sign books.

“Julia Cadenhead did an outstanding job on this new book,” said Ann Spann, museum director. “We are very proud to add it to our collection and greatly appreciate her dedication to the museum.”

The author tells the history of the turpentining industry in the panhandle through photographs, newspaper ads and articles, and biographies of local turpentining families.

In addition to Turpentining in the Florida Panhandle, Cadenhead has written two other history books in the museum series, The Escambia Farms Community and Okaloosa Homefront Strong.

“I think this is her best book yet,” Spann said.

Cadenhead is a member of the North Okaloosa Historical Assoc. Inc. Board of Directors and a descendant of Okaloosa County and State of Florida pioneers.

All three of Cadenhead’s books are for sale in the museum’s Mercantile Store.
