Moving to Jacksonville
Jacksonville is Florida's most populous city and the nation's largest city by geographical area, spanning close to 900 square miles. It sits on the banks of the St. Johns River, only about 25 miles south of the Florida-Georgia line. This massive city has plenty to offer, ranging from beaches and lush parks to shopping, dining and nightlife.
The History of Jacksonville
Historically, the Timucuan Indians first settled in the area around 500 B.C. About 1562, the French Huguenots made it the first European city along the St. Johns River, establishing Fort Caroline along the bank. It stood for a mere three years, then the Spanish took over and demolished the fort, replacing it with their own Fort San Mateo.
Some 200 years later, the Spanish transferred the land to British control for 20 years. Then as fate had it, it returned to the Spanish in 1763. At that time, plantations covered the land and indigo, lumber, vegetables, rice and cotton were staples ready to export. In 1822, the area became a US territory and was named for Andrew Jackson, the first provisional governor of the district and future U.S. president. After the Civil War, Jacksonville was a popular resort town for America's elite, providing easy access to its sunny beaches via railroad and steamboat.
In 1901, the city suffered a massive fire that destroyed thousands of buildings and left more than 10,000 people without homes. The "Great Fire of 1901" began as a small kitchen fire, but remains one of the worst disasters in Florida's history. The city set about rebuilding and received an economic boost when it earned attention as a favorite for New York City-based filmmakers. The mid-1900s were filled with challenges for the city, as it battled urban sprawl, corruption and a declining population. However, things began to turn around in the late 1960s, when voters elected to pass a consolidation referendum that joined city and county governments.
Since then, Jacksonville has undergone major revitalization efforts, including economic development, environmental protection measures and road improvements.
