The Riverside Avondale Historic District in Jacksonville, Florida, is the most architecturally diverse in the state. This video details how the neighborhood began and grew to prominence, and also explores its intervening travails. Today, largely through the efforts of Riverside Avondale Preservation, the non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the neighborhood, it's a vibrant, diverse community with an outstanding quality of life.
The Historic Preservation Commission of Jacksonville recognized this video, produced by Jeanmarie Grimsley, Vice Chair of Marketing and Outreach for Riverside Avondale Preservation, as a significant contribution to the local historic preservation movement.
