Max Mueller House 1888

While the locals did everything possible to chase the Chinese and Blacks out of town, the Jews actually assimilated into the Christian community. Max Mueller, for example, belonged to three fraternal lodges, and served as City and County Treasurer, County Clerk, and Postmaster for 18 years. Lipman Sachs was an election clerk for 10 years. Mueller and the Fisher brothers contributed the nails when a new fence was needed for the Methodist Church. There is no evidence suggesting prejudice towards Jacksonville's Jews.
