“Behind the Counter” at the Beekman Bank
July 12 - July 15
An event every week that begins at 3:00am on Friday, repeating until August 31, 2019
Established as a gold dust office in 1856, the Bank saw over $40 million cross its counters during Jacksonville’s heyday–equivalent to over $1billion today! The current structure has been preserved intact since Cornelius Beekman locked the doors in 1912. Guests are invited to step behind the counter, look in drawers, view old stage schedules, enter the vault, and learn about 19th Century banking practices. The bank is located at 110 W. California Street in Jacksonville (the corner of California and North 3rd streets). Admission is free, but donations are encouraged. All monies go towards the ongoing preservation and maintenance of this regional treasure.
