The Lewis Ansbacher Map Collection is located on the 4th floor of the Jacksonville Main Library in downtown Jacksonville and is a collection of 24o maps dating back to the 16th century. The maps are displayed along the walls of the room and give the room a feeling of both worldliness and age that isn’t commonly found in a city of only 200 years.
