The Great Jacksonville Fire of 1901 began at Davis and Beaver Streets and spread to most of downtown Jacksonville. The devastating fire destroyed most of Jacksonville’s buildings, including the library.
After Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie agreed to donate $50,000 toward the construction of a new library, Carnegie Library was constructed and served as Jacksonville’s main library branch from 1905 until 1965. The Jacksonville Library Building became home to the Bedell Firm in 1984. Learn more about the Bedell Firm building here.
