HENRY JOHN KLUTHO’S HOGANS CREEK GREENWAY — THE BIRTH OF THE EMERALD TRAIL

Location: Museum of Contemporary Art
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

This slideshow by the Jacksonville Historical Society’s Historian-at-Large will explore the innovative plan envisioned by architect Henry John Klutho in 1929 to turn Hogans Creek from an eyesore into an elegant pedestrian greenway. His concept resulted in a Venetian-themed promenade over a mile long, connecting Springfield’s parks with canals, lagoons, decorative light fixtures, and ornamental bridges and balustrades. Although the city allowed Klutho’s masterpiece to gradually fall into disrepair, its potential for restoration will make it one of the scenic highlights of the planned Emerald Trail, a series of trails, greenways, and parks that will encircle Jacksonville’s urban core neighborhoods.

Dr. Wayne Wood, Hon. AIA
Widely regarded as one of the foremost chroniclers of Jacksonville’s history and architecture, Wayne has been called “the undisputed godfather of preservation in Jacksonville.” In 1974 he founded Riverside Avondale Preservation, one of the largest neighborhood preservation groups in the South. Wayne was also founder of the Riverside Arts Market (RAM), a massive weekend marketplace for artists, local farmers, and entertainers. He has published fourteen books about Jacksonville’s history, including the classic Jacksonville’s Architectural Heritage. For over 40 years he has played a key role in saving many of this city’s endangered landmarks. Folio Weekly called him “The Most Interesting Man in Jacksonville.”

Jacksonville Origins: A Talk with Emily Lisska

Location: Conference Center at Main Libary

Jacksonville's name first appeared on a petition dated June 15, 1822. Sixty one residents signed the request, asking then US Secretary of State John Quincy Adams to designate "Jacksonville" as a port of entry. After that, the name "Jacksonville" began to replace previous references to the "cow ford" or "Cowford" and the development of this Bold City of the South began in earnest.

What was Jacksonville like in those early days? Why was the timing right in 1822 for the city's founding? Who set all of this in motion?

During her talk on Saturday, June 11 at 1 p.m. in the Conference Center at the Main Library, Emily Lisska will answer these questions and more.

Attend in-person or watch the virtual livestream from anywhere!

As a Jacksonville native, Lisska has actively researched, preserved, presented, and promoted North Florida’s unique and diverse history for more than three decades. She is also the former Executive Director of the Jacksonville Historical Society (1996-2018) and Immediate Past President and current board member of the Florida Historical Society.

This event is presented in conjunction with Jacksonville's official “Bicentennial Street Festival & Fireworks” which kicks off across the street at James Weldon Johnson Park.

Note: Walk-ins will be welcome as space permits. Seating in the auditorium is limited. Reserve your seat now using your library card and PIN at https://jaxpubliclibrary.libnet.info/event/6431533. Virtual attendees will receive a Zoom link via email upon registration.
