Charlotte Curry Christensen has been a loyal HistoryMiami Museum Member for a remarkable fifty-two years! With deep roots in South Florida, Charlotte has a lifelong interest and love of the history of our city. While Charlotte now lives in Orlando, she says her heart remains in Miami. It’s one of the reasons she remains a loyal member of the museum that safeguards and shares Miami’s history.
Charlotte credits her father for her fondness of history. In fact, her father was part of one of the most historic moments in South Florida when he was just five years old. She says he was chosen to spread flower petals at the Key West train station to welcome Henry Flagler and his railroad to Key West when it rolled into town in 1912.
With a love of history, Charlotte chose a career in education, teaching history at Miami Springs Jr. High School. Each school year, she promised her reluctant students that if they took an interest in history and did their reports, she would reward them with a field trip at the end of the course. After successfully spurring them to action, she hired a bus and took the students to local historic site. One of her favorite stops was her beloved HistoryMiami Museum. She says she wanted the children to understand their history and share it with their families in hopes of connecting them in a meaningful way to their community.
We thank you, Charlotte Curry Christensen for supporting us through your faithful membership and your dedication to teaching your students the past in hopes of inspiring the future!
