Long description

Avondale is a historical area in Jacksonville, Florida that runs along the St. Johns River. The streets are lined with large oak trees and the neighborhood has a variety of architectures. Many homes used coquina for foundations and fireplaces and most still have the original hardwood floors and bathroom fixtures and tubs. There are 15 small parks with trees and plants including live oaks, magnolias, palms, azaleas, and dogwoods, conveying a strong sense of time and place.
