S/W Jacksonville- a part of Arlington Area
Duval Co., Florida
The Gilmore Community area was in the southwestern area
of Jacksonville. The Arlington area has gobbled it up. Some
of the roads have new names as happens often as areas grow and roads are connected to other existing roads.

This early 1900 map gives a wonderful view of all the land owners of the time.
Archibald Gilmore, Sr. homesteaded 640 acres which he acquired from the
United States in 1885.
Of the larger parcels only his next door neighbor, John Peterson held the land
before the Gilmore's did. John shows a homestead date of 1879.
