Abstract/Description: Joan Haley was a journalist and socialite who retired to Pass-a-Grille in the 1950s. She purchased the dilapidated Pass-a-Grille Community Church building, which was at risk of being torn down following the relocation of the congregation. Upon her death, she left the structure to Pinellas County; the building is now home to the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum. This artifact is an original drawing done by an artist named Melissa. She was known for drawing christmas cards for Joan to deliver to friends. The drawing was of, at the time, a depiction of Joan’s new home. She used the Christmas card to announce moving and her change of address.
