The Historic Marker, which includes a brief description of the home’s history, was donated by the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Colonists, a hereditary organization that among other goals, works to research, record and publish deeds of American colonists. Promoting stewardship of natural, archaeological and cultural sites is a core service of PBC Parks.

After the unveiling presentation, visitors traveled back in time by participating in free docent-led tours of the DuBois Pioneer Home, one of the oldest surviving historic homes in Palm Beach County. Docent-led tours are typically available Tuesdays, Wednesdays (through December 2019) and Thursdays from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. at the home.

Volunteer Spotlight: BARRY DRUCKER

Barry Drucker has been a dedicated volunteer for one year now at John Prince Golf Learning Center (JPGLC). Staff at JPGLC can always depend on Barry to help out whenever they need him and he always stays busy with light duties such as trash and debris, filling divots with sand, etc. In addition to those light duties, Barry does the range picking and maintains the mat and rope line.

What is his favorite part about volunteering here? “John Prince Park is a nice place to be at; it’s a great natural habitat to observe.”

What stands out most about Barry is his dependability and work ethic.
