It’s Historic Jacksonville’s 

History Mystery Title

We’ve taken a breather from all of our summer activities and are back exploring Great Grandma’s attic.  We’ve again come across some objects that were part of 19th Century Jacksonville life but have us completely puzzled!  We need your help identifying  them, so we’ve revived our History Mystery guessing game!

E-mail the correct answer to info@historicjacksonville.org or message us on Facebook (historicjville), and you’ll be entered in our drawing for a $25 gift certificate valid at all Jacksonville merchants.  (Facebook “comments” don’t count!  Why would you want to share the correct answer with the world?)

 

And do enjoy the unique shopping and dining experiences our Jacksonville merchants offer.  While you’re at it, be sure to thank them for all the items, gift certificates and services they provide that continue to make our History Mystery game so much fun!
