GATOR BOWL GAME PARKING
TO SUPPORT THE
JACKSONVILLE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Jacksonville Historical Society invites you to park for the Gator Bowl Game in an historic site near the stadium. The site is Old St. Luke’s Hospital property at 314 Palmetto Street immediately behind the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum providing convenient parking and tail gate space for $20.
St. Luke’s, Jacksonville’s first hospital, opened in December 1878. The hospital moved to a larger complex in Springfield in 1912. In the late 1970’s, the center section of the original building was saved and restored by the late Congressman Charles Bennett and other community leaders.
The Jacksonville Historical Society is raising funds to purchase this historic property to house the Society’s archives of Jacksonville history.
