“First Federal Savings and Loan on 331 West Forsyth St.  This was a very well built building and nice looking. 1955.”  LS

One of the few remaining art deco buildings left in Jacksonville, the structure was completed in 1941 and initially housed the First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Jacksonville as well as the Tucker Brothers Companies that provided Real Estate, Mortgages, Rentals and Insurance. It went on to be the home of the USO headquarters and servicemen’s recreation center, Club 331, Happy Chef and Buck’s Bakery and Barbecue and was eyed as a downtown location for Sweet Pete’s, but had been sitting empty until purchased in 2016 to operate as The Bank BBQ & Bakery.
