This historic 19th century building in the heart of downtown Jacksonville, FL was built in 1863 during the Civil War by Dr. Augusta Bexley, Chief Surgeon for the Confederate Army. Destroyed in the “Great Fire of 1901”, it was then rebuilt by Dr. Bexley’s son using fireproof materials and custom molded concrete blocks. It was the Plaza Hotel until 1913 and then became the Bexley’s residence. This National Treasure was then refurbished and restored in 1985 by attorney Glenn Allen and utilized as his primary law office only a block from the Duval County Courthouse. It contains the original wood floors with a fully restored, ornate finished interior. It remains in excellent condition!

This building is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places as: THE PLAZA BUILDING
