Where Once Stood a Village Called Dames Point

Click below for the full story.

“I’m really scared of it,” 77 year Mabel Emory said of the Dames Point Bridge. It was 1984. The Jacksonville Transportation Authority told her to get her house out of its way. Whether the old Spanish coquina well were still there, wherever the Timucuan artifacts went, where the old village of Dames Point disappeared, the bridge now rises, just down and across from Goat Island.

 On August 23 at 6:30 pm at the Jacksonville Historical Society, Tim Gilmore will launch, read from, and sign his newest book, Goat Island Hermit: The State of Florida vs. Rollians Christopher.
