Event description
Walking tour of Jacksonville's historic Five Points and Brooklyn neighborhoods

About this event

Join The Jaxson for a guided tour of Jacksonville's historic Five Points and Brooklyn neighborhoods. Carved out of a former cotton plantation land in 1868, Brooklyn and Five Points have greatly contributed to Jacksonville's growth and culture for over 150 years. Since the Civil War, both neighborhoods have been the home to a surprisingly diverse population including the descendants of Gullah Geechee freedmen and women, bohemians and artists seeking asylum, and wealthy men and women of industry.

Development along Riverside Avenue in Brooklyn has accounted for much of "Downtown" Jacksonville's growth for more than a decade, while Five Points has evolved into one of Jacksonville’s most vibrant pedestrian-friendly districts and cultural hubs. We’ll explore how these neighborhoods came to be, how they've changed and how they’ll continue to evolve going forward.

The tour starts and ends outside the Cummer Museum. Street parking is free. Tickets are $20; kids 12 and under are free. The tour is suitable for most travelers.
