Project Update Summer 2011

Jones Family House Historic MarkerThe Legacy Project consists of two major elements. The focal point is the A. Quinn Jones Museum, to be developed in the former Jones home at 1013 NW 7th Avenue in Gainesville.  Serving as a tribute to one of the most influential educators in the history of Alachua County, the museum will feature exhibits on “Prof” Jones, the people and places of the Fifth Avenue / Pleasant Street neighborhood, and house a collection of oral histories centering on the African-American experience in Gainesville.

We are happy to announce that the A. Quinn Jones house is scheduled to be rehabilitated in 2012.  Visit this site again for regular updates.
