Scenic Jacksonville
Built in 1897, the former summer home of Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, Floridas 19th Governor (1905-1909), still stands beautifully preseved along Heckscher Drive at the mouth of the St. Johns River. Its a picturesque example of Victorian architecture, complete with Widows Walk. In 1972 it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, and has been managed by the Timucuan Ecological And Historic Preserve since 2004.

Saved, preserved, cherished, and open to the public to enjoy on a #scenicsaturday.
