Do you know what this building is in #DTJax? 🏙

Designed by by architect Henry John Klutho, the St. James building is one of our oldest in the Urban Core. Opened in 1912, this building was first known as the St. James Hotel before it was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1901. Later, the building became Cohen Brothers’ Department Store and today, it is used as Jacksonville's City Hall. ⭐️
