History

For some history visit the oldest wooden schoolhouse in St. Augustine. So I'm going to tell you about Florida in the olden days! The Native Americans first came to Florida. The tribes were: Calusa Indians, Timuca, Apalachee, and Tequesta! The first European to go to Florida was Juan Ponce De Leon! He named Florida after the Spanish word for full of flowers. In the 1845 Florida was admitted a slave state by the union. Then Henry Flager built a railroad around the East coast.
