The Merrill House was saved from demolition in 2000 by the Jacksonville Historical Society and City of Jacksonville. This house, the only one of its kind in Northeast Florida, exemplifies the Queen Ann style of architecture with a square tower on the southwest corner and an elaborate Merrill House 1900vergeboard in the north gable. The porch posts, brackets, and spindles reflect the Eastlake style. The Merrill residence is the largest and most architecturally interesting of the nineteenth-century houses remaining in East Jacksonville.
The tour should last any where from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the group. Due to the size of the rooms, up to 30 people are allowed in a group per tour.
