Saturday I had the opportunity to volunteer on clean up duty at an old abandoned school in my neighborhood; Annie Lytle Public School #4. It’s been in a sad and slow downward spiral for close to 40 years. The Annie Lytle Preservation Group has been working hard to try to save the school. It’s an incredible piece of Jacksonville history, established in 1917- the structure is still relatively sound and has some beautiful architectural assets to offer. As I walked around with the group of volunteers on a tour before we began working, I was astounded by the beauty that remains.

Oh those beautiful bricks. Would be wonderful if it could be restored into apartments or an artist”s space?
Yes it would! But it’s so close to the highway, literally 10 feet away on the upper front floors it would be a hard sell!
