Bedell Sponsors 2023 Great Fire Run

The Great Fire Run, organized by the Jacksonville Historical Society, was held on May 6th, 2023 to honor the anniversary of the devastating Great Fire that ravaged downtown Jacksonville on May 3, 1901. This year, Bedell had the honor of sponsoring the Great Fire Run on the 1901 Club Great Fire Survivor level as a business that pre-dates the tragedy. 

The Great Fire that struck Jacksonville in 1901 originated at the intersection of Davis and Beaver Streets before engulfing a significant portion of downtown Jacksonville. The catastrophic blaze resulted in the decimation of numerous structures, including the library. 

Following philanthropist Andrew Carnegie’s generous donation of $50,000 in 1905, reconstruction commenced on Jacksonville’s central library, the Carnegie Library. In 1984, the Bedell Firm took up residence in the building. 

Thank you to the following participants and supporters for representing Bedell:

  • Katie Lob
  • Amelia Lob
  • Maya Jamison
