  “The Tamiami Trail – Building the Road that Connected Florida’s Coasts”
 
This exhibit focuses on the construction of the road – the tools, techniques and machinery used, as well as the men who made the project a reality. It features the return of our restored and enhanced scale model of the Bay City Walking Dredge as well as the unveiling of a recently acquired artifact: a 1920s dynamite plunger manufactured by the Hercules Powder company – the same sort used to detonate the 2,598,000 sticks of TNT used in the construction of the Tamiami Trail.
