ELLA JORDAN HOUSE
Now closing in on its 125th birthday, this historical landmark is in need of restoration to continue the legacy and life-long commitment of Mrs. Ella Jordan, the Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs, and to give hope to a new generation.
The Jackson House is a two-story home consisting of twenty-four (24) rooms. The house is located at 851 East Zack Street in downtown Tampa in close proximity to the train station. The first known owner was Sarah Allen.
Historic Coach Alonzo "Jake" Gaither Home
The Historic Gaither Home, located at 212 Young Street, was saved in 2013 by Cornelius and Reché Jones. It is now a museum and community meeting space. Jake Gaither (1903-1994) was once the winningest coach in college football history, coaching the Rattlers of Florida A&M University to 12 Black College National Championships. He retired in 1969 after 25 winning seasons, compiling an impressive 203-36-4 career record.
Historic A. Quinn Jones, Sr. Home
Legendary Alachua County educator Allen Quinn Jones (1893-1997) served as Principal of the old Lincoln High School from 1923 until 1957. On January 27, 2010, the house, located at 1013 N.W. 7th Ave in Gainesville was placed on the National Register of Historic Places for its significance to the history of Florida. The city of Gainesville's Community Redevelopment Agency has completed a renovation of the house, and plans to open the A. Quinn Jones Museum in 2017.
