San Marco

San Marco is an incredibly charming neighborhood located south of Downtown Jacksonville, across the St. Johns River. The area now comprising San Marco was occupied long before what is now Downtown Jacksonville.

It was the site of the ferry that crossed the Cowford (the original name for the narrow point of the St. Johns River where cattle crossed), and was the site of plantations from the 18th century. After the Civil War these gave way to residential developments.

The name San Marco comes from South Jacksonville's most ambitious development, begun in 1926 and consisting of many upscale Mediterranean Revival-style homes and an integrated commercial sector known as San Marco Square.  San Marco remains a diverse, upscale and architecturally significant neighborhood, with many of its former government buildings and homes surviving.

San Marco Square is a popular gathering spot with many restaurants, boutique shops, historic San Marco Theatre and performing arts Little Theatre.
