Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Mandarin Boardwalk
“A Place for Socializing and Strolling”
— Walter Jones Historical Park —
Built around 1856, the Mandarin Boardwalk extended one mile along the riverfront, linking several piers and farmsteads and later the Episcopal church. Built approximately four feet from the river’s edge, the boardwalk was used by residents until it eventually succumbed to wind and waves in the early 1900s.
