display on the recent restoration of the Governor Stone may be seen at
the Publishing Museum, 1134 Beck Avenue, Panama City, Florida. A
walking tour of the historic St. Andrews area is available from the
museum and includes the Governor Stone when she is in port.
Heritage Museum at 115 Westview Avenue in Valparaiso, FL and the Bay
County Museum at 133 Harrison Avenue in Panama City also have permanent
displays of the Governor Stone.
2010 The Friends of the Governor Stone, Inc. received a grant from the
Florida Humanities Council to produce 4 educational panels depicting
the history of schooners along the Gulf Coast, the duties they
performed, their contribution to local development and the specific
story of the Governor Stone. Della Scott-Ireton, Director
of the Northwest Region of the Florida Public Archaeology Network and Amy
Mitchell-Cook, Assistant Professor of the Department of History at the
University of West Florida in Pensacola were scholars for the project. These
panels often travel with the vessel, but are also available to
organizations and institutions in the area as an educational display
and can be used in conjunction with the above artifact display.
