Cary Conley considers herself a historian, educator and writer. She and her family moved to Venice in 1957.  After obtaining a degree in English with chemistry and math from Florida Southern in Lakeland she took a bus to New York City to seek her fortune at AT&T.  Along the way she married and raised a son and daughter.  She earned a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Delaware, retired early from the Credit Card division of Chase Manhattan and returned to Florida to care for her Mother.      

Upon returning to Venice she became the Director of Education at Historic Point serving for over 11 years.  Her favorite job was initiating and developing the archaeology camp program and school program for third graders, both a classroom program called the Traveling Trunk and tours at the historic site, including publishing their handbook, Archaeology and the Prehistoric People of Southwest Florida as part of the Color and Learn Science Series by Action Publishing.   Her love of learning about the Americas’ early people has taken her to our southwest to hunt for the Anasazi, to the Yucatan to learn about the Mayans and to Peru and Machu Picchu to rub elbows with the Incas.   

Currently a member of the Board of Directors of Friends of Little Salt Spring she serves as the Education Chair.  She looks forward to helping establish Little Salt Spring as Someplace Special USA.


The Prehistory Natives of Historic Spanish Point and Little Salt Spring

Come to hear a fascinating discussion of two different groups of ancient people who occupied the land known today as Historic Spanish Point in Osprey and Little Salt Spring in North Port.  Who were they? How did they get here? When did their culture flourish at each distinct site?  What do we know about them from archaeological analysis of the remnants of these living sites?  What did they eat, their burial practices, transportation, pottery and housing?   How can we learn more?
