Riverside native Virginia King was a “quirky” woman, but there’s no doubt that she made significant contributions to Jacksonville’s historical preservation by roaming the city streets, taking countless photos and scribbling notes of her many observations – for decades.
Her life’s work, which ultimately equated to nearly 8,500 handwritten pages filling 19 binders, is remembered along with her peculiar personality, including her outdated clothing choices and obsession with older buildings throughout the city.
From Thursday, March 31 through Sunday, April 3, FSCJ’s DramaWorks will be performing a new play about King, who died in 2001. You can purchase tickets by calling (904) 646-2222.
