Bisbee Building & Florida Life Insurance Building

Description

Bisbee Building and Florida Life Insurance Building, Jacksonville, Fl. The Laura Street Trio is a group of three historic buildings located on and near Laura Street in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The Trio consists of two perpendicularly-arranged skyscrapers, the Florida Life Building and the Bisbee Building, plus a third structure, the Old Florida National Bank (or Marble Bank), which is framed by the other two in a unique pattern. The three buildings, constructed in the wake of the Great Fire of 1901, are architecturally significant, but are currently endangered. Bisbee Building was built in 1908-1909 and the Florida Life Insurance was built in 1911-1912, and designed by architect H J Klutho.
