From planning Jacksonville to learning what’s under your own home, maps can tell a story. Unravel the mystery at Jacksonville Public Library’s Mapping Our Past with expert panelists, presentations, and keynote speaker Christopher Lane of PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” who will discuss how legendary kingdoms, magical mountains, and other geographic myths influenced explorers and travelers.

Special presentations will highlight the Lewis Ansbacher Map Collection, which comprises more than 240 antiquarian maps and engravings from around the world, including the notable Le Moyne/de Bry Collection. Discover why maps are so critical to the planning and development of Jacksonville’s past, present and future.

Everyone is invited to the free event at the Main Library, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., with activities for kids, teens and adults. Lane will speak at 3 p.m. and B. Langston’s Antiques will offer free appraisals for up to two items (no weaponry please) between 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
