The Mary Coogler Art Show features the art of Mary Anderson Coogler - an artist who created wonderful pieces showcasing the beauty of Florida.

Mary Anderson Coogler came to Brooksville with her sister Mrs. George Martin in 1895 from Springfield, TN. During her stay, she met Theodore Coogler Jr. (Raymond Robins' attorney) and they were married three years later.
