S. H. Kress Building


S. H. Kress Building Plaque, Jacksonville, Fl.

The Kress Building located at 10 West Adams Street in downtown Jacksonville, built in 1912, was one of the finest examples of early commercial architecture in Jacksonville. It was one of the first poured-in-place concrete buildings in the city. It was designed by architect Seymour Burrell.

In 1980 the former two-story retail space was converted to a multi-use, three-story office building. This involved remodeling of the interior to create more floor space, and addition of a new floor between the first and second floors. It is now the law office of Farah & Farah.

This plaque designates the building as a NRHP National Register of Historic Places. It was awarded by the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission, for the restoration and remodeling of the building.
