Historical Destination Guide
You are coming on a work trip to one of Florida’s most historic cities, first founded by European settlers back 1562. Jacksonville is rich with old Florida history, Civil War history, Civil Rights history, and Southern Rock history. Our Downtown is one of the oldest in the state and packed with architectural gems from the early 1900’s. We have museums dedicated to the African American story in Jacksonville (which is quite progressive and impressive), we have museums featuring the history of our beaches and a museum dedicated to the history of our biggest and most historic park, the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. Wouldn’t you hate to visit Jax and miss exploring all these historic jewels? Extend your next work trip and make our history part of yours!
