Long description

Named after a neighborhood in Manhattan, Murray Hill is a 1907 replat of the northern section of the Edgewood subdivision. In 1914, streetcar service was extended to the community and in 1915, Murray Hill was incorporated as its own town. Many early residents were railroad workers who built homes in Murray Hill due to its close proximity to the terminal in Lackawanna. Murray Hill was annexed to the City of Jacksonville in 1925. Primarily developed over the first half of the 20th century, Murray Hill is home to a diverse collection of architectural styles that combine to give the neighborhood a unique sense of place. Residential architectural styles include Bungalow, Craftsman, Prairie School, Colonial, Tudor Revival, Art Deco and Masonry Vernacular. Houses are typically smaller than those in other local historic districts. The oldest existing house in Murray Hill was built in 1898 at 916 Talbot Avenue.
