Jacksonville Historical Society celebrates city's 200th birthday with bicentennial events

by The 100 Companies

Move over Yellowstone 1883, Jacksonville will celebrate its bicentennial in 2022. As reported in the Florida Times-Union, in the first few decades of the 1800s, Northeast Florida was largely unsettled frontier, apart from St. Augustine, Fernandina Beach and some Spanish land-grant farms and plantations.

The Jacksonville Historical Society, in partnership with several community organizations representing Arts & Culture, Business & Industry, Education, Environment, Faith, Government, Health & Wellness, Media, Nonprofit and Sports & Entertainment, are planning and will kick off bicentennial events in January with programs and events throughout the entire bicentennial year.

The official kick-off will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27 at 7PM.
