2. Levy & Co. Building
a plain false front to reveal much of the original architecture of 1857. When most of Jackson burned in 1862, county fathers commandeered the basement here for a county jail. It imprisoned many until about 1864 when a county court house and jail were completed. In the sidewalk here is an E Clampus Vitus plaque memorializing the county courthouse's nearby location in 1851-52. This 1968 bronze is not the infamous Jackson heart-shaped plaque, despite its shape.
