The Church in the pictures is just incredible. A lot of interesting old buildings and no means to bring any of them back, it would appear.
When I posted previously ,what I meant was that we do not seem to have resources to bring any of our historic structures back, even the smallest and least expensive to restore. Gary , Indiana. seems to be an example of the end-result.
I would love to think that this could never happen to Jacksonville. Then I look around at numerous vacant and decaying buildings in just our downtown area. Springfield.Fragment remains of LaVilla , Brooklyn. The further the burbs extend, the more the central part of Jacksonville seems to decline. It was said nothing has been demolished downtown recently. Nope. not in a year or so.
Does not seem all that far-fetched to think it could happen. Annie Lytle is one example. The recent book about our landmarks depict very similar conditions in many of these structures and all with the same problem. No money or purpose for them.. yet.
We can only hope that a way is identified , and soon. Time is running out for many of these places.
