The Commonwealth Neighborhood In Jacksonville FL

The Commonwealth section of Jacksonville, before, was mainly rural and scattered with World War II Auxiliary Airfields. Now the site of Paxon School for Advanced Studies, was where Jacksonville’s first airfield was located in the early 1920s. The plane accident that killed Bessie Coleman – the world’s first licensed black pilot- occurred at Paxon Field.

Hart Field, near the intersection of Lane Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue, was established in 1942 by the Navy to support flight training operations in Jacksonville. The field was short-lived as it was shut down 9 months later. It was converted to a civilian airport for a while and then abandoned between 1945 and 1956.

During this period, Commonwealth started to gain popularity as an alternate location for heavy industry when Haydon Burns administration desired to clean up the urban waterfront. Today, the Commonwealth neighborhood is one of the industrial communities in Florida and its proximity to interstate commerce highways and railroads aided in its development.
