Northwest Florida State College donated approximately $60,000 worth of land to the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida to assist them in expanding their operations and building their proposed Folk School.

“We are proud to donate this land to help our friends at the Heritage Museum expand their offerings,” said Dr. Devin Stephenson, president of the college. “The Heritage Museum’s proposed ideas will make a huge impact on our community by expanding the opportunities where locals can continue their education and broaden their skillsets.”

NWFSC donated a 0.11-acre triangle of land, as well as 0.09-acre sliver of land on the other side of the Heritage Museum building.

Ruckel Properties also donated property to the Heritage Museum, giving them enough land to build the proposed Folk School.
