Hey Bill, et al -
I may have found the discrepancy for the address (116 Candler vs 39 W Candler).
I was looking at the Sanford Fire Maps (1921-1925 edition) of the area, and noticed in it that at one time, Candler St was one long street from origin to termination - with the origin starting at Midland St, it would be 10 or so city blocks to reach the Jackson-Johns house, thereby placing it's original address (when it was built) at around 116 Candler St.
However, sometime between then and now, the street was split - everything west of Broad street became West Candler St, and everything East became East Candler St - hence, my house now being at 118 even though I am west of the W. Candler and Church St intersection.
It doesn't explain the "demolished" status though, as obviously the house is still there and even accommodating the split, 116 W Candler was demolished many years ago as there was a tennis court there from the 40's all the way up into the 80's - now it's an empty lot next to me owned by my neighbor.
Anyway, hope that helps with the address difference.
Wow! Best laid plans... went down to take pictures of the house, ended up tripping on the curb and sprained my ankle. Just didn't feel much like trying to get shots after that.
But finally after a lot of bed rest and wearing a boot, I hobbled today down there to take the pictures; find them attached.
Hi Bill -
No, the address is more in the upper 30's in the block between Broad and Woodlawn next door to The Magnolia Restaurant and across the street from the city parking lot - I'm at 118 W Candler. Per JR's request, I'll get some pics of the house and get them uploaded of it's current state - I have to go down there today anyway to get my haircut. :)
I listed it as demolished based on Wikipedia.
Is the address actually 116 W. Candler St?
Ummm.... I'm not sure how this got "demolished" status - I pass it every day because I live 3 blocks down from it... so as of 11/05/2020 it's still standing (although I don't think it's used as a realty office anymore - nobody is ever around it).
