The Historic Capen-Showalter House is opening at the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens. The public is invited to the free “Celebrate the Capen Open House” event from 1 – 4 p.m on October 11, 2015 at the Polasek Museum (633 Osceola Avenue, Winter Park, Florida).

The event will be free to the public (donations appreciated). An exhibit highlighting the story of the house, its generations of residents, and its heroic save by the community will be unveiled during this celebratory event.

“We are thrilled to mark the 130th anniversary of the Capen-Showalter House at the Polasek Museum and welcome the community to visit and enjoy an irreplaceable part of Winter Park’s history,” said Debbie Komanski, Executive Director. “This renewed home will be used to host many of our events and will benefit residents and guests to Central Florida for years to come. We could not have accomplished this work without the dedication of our construction and design team and the support of the whole community.”
