#Jacksonville Public Library Displays ‘Neighborhoods’ MOSH Exhibit 


Neighborhoods help define Jacksonville as a city and many residents engage with the city on a neighborhood level. To mark the 50th anniversary of Jacksonville’s consolidation, the Museum of Science & History (MOSH) hosted a signature exhibit, Neighborhoods, showcasing the city’s many neighborhoods. 

The exhibit features a set of large, illustrated text panels mounted in custom “doorframes” that outline the historical development of Jacksonville’s many and varied neighborhoods, from early river communities to automobile-based suburbs. The exhibit underscores the importance of vibrant, healthy neighborhoods to the city’s identity and well-being. 

This exhibit, supported by many local organizations and individuals, was originally shown at MOSH from September 2018 to May 2019. It is traveling around Duval County thanks to a gift from an anonymous champion of Jacksonville’s diverse and storied neighborhoods. The exhibit is currently on display in the Makerspace Gallery at the Main Library.
