Craddock Mausoleum at Sunset Memorial Cemetery-Jacksonville, Florida

I love this mausoleum. This Art Moderne mausoleum belongs to the Craddock family, a once prominent Black family in Jacksonville, Florida. James “Charlie Edd” Craddock ran several nightclubs in the area. The Two Spot was dubbed in the NAACP magazine as “the finest dance place in the country owned by a Negro”. He also had several other business ventures that made him incredibly successful.

He is buried in what once was a prominent Black cemetery that will be restored.
