Description

The Jones High School Historical Society Inc. was formed in 1995 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the schools founding in 1895. The historical society opened and maintains a museum on site at Jones High School. James “Chief” Wilson and Audrey Reicherts appear in the photograph.

Located in the Parramore/Lorna Doone neighborhood of downtown Orlando, Jones High School was the first area public school for African-Americans. The original building was located on the corner of Garland Avenue and Church Street, but the school was renamed the Johnson Academy and moved to a new building on the corner of Chatham Avenue and West Jefferson Street. In 1921, the school was renamed in honor Principal L. C. Jones and a brick colonial revival building was constructed on the corner of Parramore Avenue and Washington Street. The school was finally moved to its current location at 801 South Rio Grande Avenue in 1952.
