Museum of Southern History

4304 Herschel Street
Jacksonville, FL 32210

904-388-3574

Mission Statement:

The Museum of Southern History was established to maintain and perpetuate an educational facility for those who are interested in the history of the United States, its early problems and difficulties in becoming the Nation it is today.  The museum is dedicated to historical accuracy in presenting the lifestyle and culture of the Antebellum South, a unique civilization, misunderstood by many, belittled and misrepresented by some, but deeply revered by the grateful descendants of the brave men and women whose sacrifices and dedication to a cause that created a chapter in our nation's history that is unmatched. Special attention is given to the education of young people as groups of school children are given basic education in our nation's history in the hope that they will better understand and perhaps develop an interest in learning more about their history.
