Guanabocoa Trail End, Guanabacoa, Cuba

Temp Travel Office
End of the speculative Guanabacoa Trail, originating in the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, Jacksonville, FL. Signage on the platform reads: Guanabacoa, now a suburb of Havana, Cuba played an important role in the historical narrative of slavery in the "New World." Once the site of forced reservation camps for indigenous peoples, Guanabacoa would become a haven for escaped slaves from the United States. Here, a small stretch of the US 1 highway running through Jacksonville, Florida is reconstructed on the site of a former reservation. The actual stretch of road is now named for Johnnie Mae Chappell, an African-American woman who was gunned down as she walked along the road on March 23, 1964. Several miles away in downtown Jacksonville, protests against the inequities of racial segregation turned violent as whites fought the advances of civil rights. #jacksonville #park #temporarytraveloffice #trail
