On Friday October 24, 2014, the Jacksonville Historical Society will stage the second annual Halloween Party in the Casket
Factory, following up on its 2013 success as the greatest Halloween party in Jacksonville’s history. It will take place once
again at the Casket Factory, a mysterious old brick building on the edge of downtown. It is 15,000 square feet, partially
covered with vines, and thought by many to be haunted.
This event is a fund-raiser to support the restoration and maintenance of Old St. Luke’s Hospital, a National Register
landmark constructed in 1878 and owned by the Jacksonville Historical Society. Old St. Luke’s and the Casket Factory are located at
314 Palmetto Street, adjacent to the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.
The party will include live bands (including Mama Blue!), outstanding food, libations, dancing, a costume contest, and performers!
At midnight, the winner of the Totally Amazing Costume Contest will be announced! Our theme for this year's party will be announced soon!
Stay tuned for ticket sales and more information!
Now showing on the Jacksonville History Show, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and we look back at one of the most important weather events in Jacksonville history – Hurricane Dora (1964).
The show can be seen at 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 13 on Comcast Cable Ch. 99 and at various unscheduled times thereafter. It will also be posted on this website, making it available whenever you want to see it.
