The city of Jacksonville has hundreds of buildings that have withstood the test of time. Yet these lasting landmarks tell only a portion of Jacksonville's history. Dozens of other buildings have been abandoned and left to wither, turning into shadows of their former grandeur. Each place has a rich and storied history that belies modern appearances, like the Annie Lytle Elementary School, now known as the most haunted landmark in the city, and the Jacksonville Brewing Company, which had to come up with a creative way to stay afloat (think ice cream) when Prohibition hit. Join local writers Ennis Davis and Robert Mann as they go behind the scenes of fourteen crumbling but ethereally beautiful structures to reveal their true pasts. Enhanced with stunning color photography, Reclaiming Jacksonville is a must-have for every resident of the River City.
Reclaiming Jacksonville details the history of fourteen abandoned or formerly abandoned landmarks around Jacksonville, FL. The stories behind these landmarks are showcased; highlighting the structures, individuals and companies involved in the preservation of the buildings. From Florida National Bank and the Ford Motor Company to Jacksonville's first African-American millionaire, Abraham Lincoln Lewis, Davis takes you on a journey through the historic remnants of Jacksonville.
