Bishop Henry Y. Tookes House-Jacksonville, Florida

Bishop Henry Y. Tookes served the Florida District of the AME Church. This home was built in 1939. It is one of the remaining residences of a prosperous Black neighborhood known as Sugar Hill. Like many Black neighborhoods around the country, it was ruined by an interstate going through it.
