The History of Estero in One Location!

The mission of the Estero Historical Society is to educate and inspire the community
by preserving and sharing the rich history of Estero.

Jewelry Making Classes

Cheri Dunlap conducts jewelry-making classes for as few as two people in the Estero Historical Society museum. There is no cost for the class, but students do have to pay for the supplies used, and a donation to the musuem maintenance fund is appreciated.

To request information on the classes or scheduling, email rdunlap2@comcast.net.
