Historic Jacksonville (FL) Fire Station on Path to Demolition

Jacksonville’s old Fire Station 5 was built in 1910 and remained in service more than a century and now officials are considering proposals to relocate the fire station, reports Resident News.

The prospect isn’t cheap; one estimate to move the building even a few blocks was around $500,000, said Downtown Investment Authority (DIA) Executive Director Lori Boyer. But DIA members and local preservationists hope that someone with the means will materialize.
