Our virtual “Walk through History” tour is based on the Jacksonville walking tour we introduced last year. Visitors to our Facebook (historicjville) and Instagram (historicjacksonville) pages can sample snippets of local lore every Friday and Saturday. They can also choose to delve deeper into Jacksonville history by visiting our website blog (http://www.historicjacksonville.org/a-virtual-walk-through-history) that expands on each tour stop. For example, they can not only learn about multiple escapes from the historic Jackson County Jail, they can also learn about someone actually breaking into it! And can you believe that someone was married in the jail? Or that one of the “inmates” was a stash of illegal liquor?
