Original Jacksonville History Saturdays

Time travel to the 1800s in Jacksonville on the 2nd Saturday of each month from May through September.

Begin your day at 10 am with a guided tour of Jacksonville’s Historic Pioneer Cemetery.

Then stop by Cornelius Beekman’s Bank at the corner of California and North 3rd streets where over $40 million in gold crossed the counters during Jacksonville’s heyday. Meet at the door for guided behind-the-counter tours at 11:15 am, 12:15 pm, 1:15 pm, and 2:15 pm. Admission: $2.

Tour the Cornelius Beekman House at 470 E. California Street between 12 noon and 4 pm and view the late 1800s through the lens of the Cornelius Beekman family and Jacksonville. The Beekmans were one of the most prominent and wealthiest of Jacksonville’s pioneer families. The house was owned and occupied by only the one family and remains completely furnished with family artifacts. These theme tours explore a different aspect of life in the Victorian Age each month—architecture, travel, music and literature, hobbies and crafts, medicine, and more! Tours leave approximately every 15 to 20 minutes and last about 45 minutes. Admission: $5, adults; $3, seniors and children aged 6-12.

Private tours of the Bank and House are also available for groups of 10 or more, subject to date and staffing considerations, for $15 per person. Group Beekman House, Bank and Jacksonville Trolley tours are available for $20 per person. 1932 Living History tours that include a picnic lunch or strawberry tea are available for groups of 10-15 for $25 per person.
