Dorsey Company Bakery, Jacksonville, Fl. The Dorsey-O'Neil Bakery constructed the original structure in 1914 at Main and Warren Streets. Major expansions, including the transformation of the building into a Mediterranean Revival style structure, occurred in 1922 and 1925. In 1926, covering a full city block, it was the largest and most modern bakery in the South, producing 100,000 loaves of bread and cakes a day.
By the 1970s, the bakery had closed and the building was being used by the Duval County school system as a book depository. During the mid-1990s, the historic bakery building was incorporated into the campus of adjacent Kirby Smith Middle School.
