Publishers’ Note

As a new resident or visitor to Jacksonville, we hope you will enjoy this copy of Historic Life, our annual Neighbors & Newcomers Guide to the historic districts, and find it helpful as you settle in.

As we have done for the past two years, our goal is to continue to provide a resource for both individuals and families to explore the time-honored, historic neighborhoods of Riverside, Avondale, Ortega, Murray Hill, San Marco, St. Nicholas and San Jose. With this third edition, we have looked to expand on some of the listings within the sections as well as give readers insight into a variety of unique architecture within our historic neighborhoods.

If you have recently moved to one of our riverfront communities, you should receive our monthly publication, The Resident, in your mailbox. Two separate editions, each tailored specifically for the neighborhoods on each side of the river, are niche-focused, hyperlocal, and mailed directly to 25,000 residences, with over 5,000 copies distributed to local businesses and other points of interest throughout our areas.

If you have not yet settled here, live at a distance, or just seek a local connection, we invite you to visit and read both editions of our virtual issue every month.

In addition to our newspapers and Historic Life, we also publish North Florida’s premier charity magazine titled, Circles-Social Datebook and Charity Register, published annually in November. Within the pages of Circles, you will find stories about many of the generous residents that live within our neighborhoods, as well as important information about nonprofit groups, volunteer opportunities, social events and galas that benefit those in need throughout our region.

This year, The Resident Community News Group is celebrating its 10th anniversary. It is our hope that you will look to all our publications as invaluable resources as you make the transition into our historic communities. We also hope you will assist us in celebrating our decade of service to community news and information by supporting those who advertise within the pages of our publications.
