   schema:description "Arriving in Florida nearly two decades ahead of Henry Flagler, the Beechers found a wild and inaccessible state with small remnants of a slave economy. As part of the work of Reconstruction, they dreamed of making the state a haven for freedmen and progressive northerners unhampered by the rest of the South's racial divisions. Settling near Tallahassee and Jacksonville, they worked with Florida's First Lady, Chloe Merrick Reed, to effect changes in education, religion, economics, social and racial relationships, and politics, and they were instrumental in the transformation of Jacksonville from a small seaport to a vibrant city."@en ;
