Queen Anne House, Jesup

According to neighbors this once served as boarding house, though it has primarily been used as a private residence.

Folk Victorian House, Jesup


This eclectic Folk Victorian looks like a stereotypical “haunted house”; apparently, it has been in a state of disrepair for quite a few years. Hopefully, someone will buy it and restore it one day. It’s among the older houses in Jesup.

Vernacular Bungalow, Jesup

A nice variety of vernacular and formal styles can be found in Jesup’s historic residential area. It would be nice to see better documentation and a National Register of Historic Places designation for this area. I’m really surprised that no such effort has been made to date.

Craftsman Cottage, Jesup

Distinguished from the Craftsman bungalow by the lack of a dormer on the front, this is particularly nice example of the Craftsman style.

Craftsman Bungalows, Jesup

Examples of the Craftsman style in varying states of repair can be found in Jesup’s historic residential neighborhood. It would be great to see these restored.

Strand Theatre, 1924, Jesup

The primary tenant of the the O’Quinn Building, the Strand Theatre opened in 1924 with 894 seats. Theatre builders of this time typically rented space adjoining their theatres as it was considered prime real estate. The Strand was transformed into a two-screen theatre in 1988 and closed in 2009. Ralph and Jamie Hickox, who have done an exceptionally nice job of restoring and keeping viable the historic Jesup Drive-In, have recently purchased the Strand and are presently restoring it. The Strand is one of the few unaltered historic commercial structures still standing in Jesup and it’s preservation will be great.
