Writer Bill Delaney, co-owner of TheJaxsonMag.com and Edible Northeast Florida Magazine, has spent years researching Jacksonville’s underknown and underrepresented stories. His book, Secret Jacksonville: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure, is dedicated to profiling the forgotten, mysterious and just plain interesting spots across Jacksonville and the First Coast.

On Saturday, May 28, Bill is hosting the next in a series of walking tours of a few of the places featured in the book. This will be the last Secret Jacksonville walking tour until the fall, so don’t miss out!

Hear the stories of Jacksonville’s underground tunnels, the locomotive buried beneath a skyscraper, a lost (and fictitious) Native American city, a long destroyed sculptural masterpiece that will soon be reborn in Jacksonville, underknown Jax music history and much more lying just off the beaten path. The tour begins at James Weldon Johnson Park at 9 am and tickets are $15 (kids 12 and under are free).

Signed copies of Secret Jacksonville are available on the tour. You can also order online at thejaxsonmag.com/books.
