Reclaiming Jacksonville:: Stories Behind the River City's Historic Landmarks (Lost) (Paperback)
Email or call for price
Jacksonville has hundreds of buildings that have withstood the test of time. Enhanced with stunning color photography, Reclaiming Jacksonville is a must-have for every resident.
Jacksonville's lasting landmarks tell only a portion of its 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.
