MAIN STREET SOCIETY PRESENTATION
20 MAY 2020
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, beside the Fernandina Harbor Marina off Historic Center Street, Mr. Jack Healan, Jr., President and Developer of Crane Island, was pleased to present to the Main Street Society a donation of $6,500 toward their efforts in the preservation of historical architecture, protection of our island’s architectural character, and devotion to place-making in Fernandina Beach.
Crane Island architects draw much of their inspiration from historic southern architecture like that found in Fernandina. A historic home on 10th Street was the source of vision for the Southern Living Idea House, a new home built on old traditions on Crane Island. Crane Island partnered with the Amelia Island Museum of History in 2019 to host over 17,000 tours of the new home. In 2020, the new owners made the home available to extend the tours. Crane Island partnered with the Main Street Society to host a final two months of tours, during which another 1,500 visitors were able to appreciate the Southern Living Idea House and contribute to the ongoing work of the Main Street Society.
