African American Heritage at Ponce Inlet

Born in Savannah on August 7, 1872, Jesse Linzy came to Mosquito (now Ponce) Inlet possibly in the late 1890s. A skilled concrete worker, he built the sidewalk from the tower down to the river, replacing an old wooden boardwalk. The sidewalk still exists today.

When his Light Station work was completed, Jesse Linzy went to the nearby Pacetti Hotel where he worked as a handyman and fishing guide. In 1909, Jesse became the assistant to a Federal Bird Reservation Inspector and traveled with him to places as remote as Alaska and Hawaii.

Jesse Linzy died on August 11, 1955, at the age of 83. He was buried in Daytona Beach's Mt. Ararat Cemetery.
