Robinsons Addition Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Built after the Great Fire of 1901 destroyed Jacksonville’s business district, Robinson’s Addition was designed around the city’s streetcar line and still has remnants of the era, such as an intact former streetcar electrical substation. The wood-framed houses in Robinson’s Addition were built in a range of decades, from the 1910s to the 1970s. Churches and stores occupy some street corners in this downtown neighborhood. The Florida neighborhood’s sidewalks make it easy to reach them.
