Florida Yacht Club Jacksonville , Florida 1929-1930




History of The Florida Yacht Club, Jacksonville Florida 

The Florida Yacht Club was established by seventeen charter members in 1877. New York businessman William Backhouse Astor, Jr.,was the driving force behind the creation of a club promoting boating and water sports in Jacksonville. Astor felt that the broad and slow St. Johns River was a perfect location for boating, though he was the only person in Jacksonville to actually own a yacht at the time. The original clubhouse was constructed at the end of Market Street in downtown Jacksonville, and cost $3,500, to which Astor contributed $500. The original Florida Yacht Club building was a large two-story edifice, with the second floor being used for gatherings and dances. Astor served as the club's first "Commodore".

The original building burned down in the Great Fire of 1901. The club moved to a temporary clubhouse in the Riverside neighborhood, before relocating to a new dedicated facility on Willow Branch Creek in 1907. In 1928 the Florida Yacht Club moved to its present building in Jacksonville's Ortega neighborhood. The current clubhouse was designed in the Mediterranean Revival style and cost $90,000.
