Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs

The women of the Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs persuaded the Model Land Company to give them Paradise Key and environs in the Everglades. On that land, they founded and operated Royal Palm State Park from 1916 to 1947, when Everglades National Park opened with their former park as its centerpiece (present-day Anhinga and Gumbo Limbo trails). The women included Mary Barr Munroe (Miami), Ivy Stranahan (Fort Lauderdale), and May Mann Jennings.
