Historic Murray Hill Tour

On Saturday, April 22, join The Jaxson’s Ennis Davis, Bill Delaney and Mike Field for a guided walking tour of Murray Hill, one of urban Jacksonville’s emerging historic neighborhoods.

Murray Hill has a long and colorful history. Once a separate city before being annexed by Jacksonville in 1925, it’s the birthplace of Lynyrd Skynyrd founding member Gary Rossington, the place where convicted serial killer Ottis Toole burned down his mother’s house and site of a cluster of homes designed by Henrietta Dozier, Jacksonville’s first female architect.

In recent years the Hill has boomed with new residents and businesses, turning this Westside neighborhood into a hub for artists, bohemians and entrepreneurs. The tour will explore the iconic neighborhood’s history and the trends shaping its future.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on Eventbrite here for tours beginning at 9, 9:30 and 10 a.m. Saturday, March 25. Kids 12 and under are free. The tour starts and ends at the intersection of Edgewood Avenue South and Plymouth Street (1195 Edgewood Avenue South, Jacksonville, FL 32205). Street parking is free.
