I went to this back when the church tours were going on (I miss those) and it's pretty awesome. If I recall, they had some neat historic jax literature on sale too. All worth checking out.

Great event.  The piece de resistance is the unbelievably detailed gingerbread St. James Building, complete with Cohen's window displays.

There are many books on Jax history for sale as well as ornaments of Jax landmarks and historical photos.
