The Marquee Project aims to bring attention to Jacksonville’s historical figures. These diverse people made a lasting contribution to the rich history of our city, state, and nation. Our marquee is seen by over 5,000 people a day! Each week, a slide featuring a different historical person will be put in rotation with the slides that advertise upcoming events at the venue. Under the heading, “We Celebrate Jacksonville,” that person’s name, photo, birth and death years, and a brief description of their contributions to society will be featured.

This is an effort to bring attention to historical Jacksonville natives and residents who contributed to our society and might have been overlooked. Nominations and suggestions can be forwarded to
