West Florida Historic Preservation, Inc., a direct support organization of the University of West Florida, now operates under the new name of UWF Historic Trust, following a unanimous vote by the Board of Directors last month.
This name was selected as a result of an extensive research process, which included a review of numerous organizational facets. It symbolizes not only the attachment to the University, but also a relationship between the organization and the historic assets with which it is entrusted.
“UWF Historic Trust continues to fulfill our mission of collecting, preserving and interpreting the history of Northwest Florida, and the Trust has the potential to be a major economic development and community driver,” said Jerry L. Maygarden, chair of the UWF Historic Trust Board of Directors.
The official unveiling of the organization’s new brand identity will take place during an invitation only, grand re-opening event at the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum in November.
“The University takes tremendous pride in our Historic Pensacola campus,” said Dr. Brendan Kelly, interim vice president of University Advancement. “We will continue to contribute to the community through increasing investments in and awareness of UWF Historic Trust.”
In total, UWF Historic Trust manages the Historic Pensacola campus of the University of West Florida, which includes 29 historic properties spanning from downtown Pensacola to Santa Rosa County including Historic Pensacola Village, the T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum and the 37-acre Arcadia Mill Archaeological site, among others.
