The Florida Town That Was Founded Before The American Revolution And Is Packed Full Of History

Florida has quite the history within the United States. In fact, the history dates all the way back to the 1500s, which marked the start of the American Frontier when it is said that Juan Ponce de Leon first landed near St. Augustine. While this particular Florida town might not have the history dating all the way back to the early 1500s, it has still been around for quite some time and is as fascinating as ever.
