User: Windsor Hotel, Jacksonville, Florida
Date of plate: circa 1880 – 1896
Notes: The Windsor Hotel was one of Jacksonville's finest turn of the century establishments. The 1875 building burned in the Great Fire of 1901 and a larger hotel opened for business less than a year later. Fronting Hogan Street and facing Hemming Park the Windsor occupied an entire city block. In later years it was part of the Meyer Hotel chain. A federal court house now occupies that spot.
