John Love House

June 16, 2015

John Love was a successful tin and hardware merchant and one of Jacksonville’s first trustees. Around 1867, he built the house at 175 North 3rd Street for his growing family. Their stay, however, was brief. Within months John succumbed to tuberculosis; a year and a half later, his wife Anna Sophia and one of their daughters died in the smallpox epidemic of 1869.
