Event comments

On May 3, 1901, a fire that began in a factory became an uncontrollable blaze that spread quickly eastward across Downtown. By the end of the day, the fire burned 2,368 buildings and 466 acres including the oldest and most densely populated areas of Downtown, including 23 churches, 10 hotels and the majority of the public buildings. It left 8,677 residents homeless. Jacksonville was helped by many across the nation with relief funding and rebuilding by some of the country's most distinguished architects, including H. J. Klutho. Many of these beautiful structures built after the fire remain. The walk concentrates on the historic structures located in the downtown area. It also passes the new Duval County Courthouse and Prime Osborne Convention Center.
