We like to refer to Jacksonville as the biggest small town in America. Simply put, you feel welcomed here as you would in any small town, yet the land mass is vast. It takes time to learn to navigate a town considered to be the largest land mass city in the Continental U.S., it may take you a few years to truly know your way around.

What makes it special is its pockets of uniqueness found all the way from the beaches to the historic areas where our newspapers are published and direct-mailed into homes each month. With each passing issue of Resident Community News, our newspapers enlighten and enliven the community dialogue and have been for over 15 years. We can both say that there has never been a dull moment, print is alive and well.

From our city’s Southern hospitality to its unique pockets of neighborhood clusters, you’ve found the very best of them if you’re enjoying this edition of Historic Life — Community and Newcomers Guide. The local historic districts are a special place, full of great locally owned boutiques, shops and restaurants. Not to mention, businesses that are family-owned and operated, many by the same families for generations. It’s always nice to see a familiar face and count of service with a smile.

We hope you find the welcoming spirit and authenticity from locals to be refreshing as you get acquainted in the historic neighborhoods of San Marco, San Jose and St. Nicholas, and learn more of the same while crossing the mighty St. Johns River to the beautiful neighborhoods of Riverside, Avondale, Ortega and Murray Hill.

Welcome to the Neighborhood,

Pamela & Seth Williams
