Save Our Shotguns Apalachicola (SOSA) is working to create affordable housing through historic preservation. The organization is seeking projects and funding toward these goals. To promote these efforts and to educate the public, a month long series of events is being held in April 2017. Affectionately called 'PEARLS' (Preserving and Enhancing Apalachicola's Rich Legacy of Shotguns) - this is a showcase of the city's shotgun and other historic houses. Additionally, to highlight what life was like on "the Hill" in the mid 20th century - there is an old photo exhibit at Holy Family Senior Center.
