About the ruins
Located on Fort George Island in Jacksonville, Florida, the Thomson Tabby House ruins are the remains of a house built by Charles Thomson in 1854. In 1855 when Mr. Thomson died, the construction was halted and the house was ultimately never completed. Tabby is a manmade coquina, often called coastal concrete and was a common building material of the time. It is composed of burned oyster shells that are mixed with lime, sand, water, ash and a variety of other shells.
The house measures roughly 46 feet by 20 feet. It looks like the house was to have two room with a fireplace. There was room on the tabby foundation to include a porch as well. The home is said to have been for Thomson’s daughters and her husband.
The ruins are open to the public and visible from the street. If you find historic ruins like this interesting, you might like to view the Cruger-dePeyster Plantation Sugar Mill Ruins that are located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida or even the Dummitt Plantation Mill Ruins in Ormand Beach, Florida.
