For those who are connected with social media, tomorrow Jax Pop Up History will be holding an event where the subject and location will be secret until announced online shortly before the actual event.  From

Join the Jacksonville Historical Society as we present a series of pop up events depicting historical events in our city that have gone largely untold.

On Saturday, July 21st, we will commemorate the anniversary of one of Jacksonville’s most astonishing and little known historical events. Sponsored by the Jacksonville Historical Society, this celebration will itself be an amazing and slightly quirky event, since the historical subject and the exact location will not be announced until right before the event takes place. Using social media to spread the announcement, the event will ‘pop up’ just in time for hundreds of people to attend.
