Are Various Sites of Interest Contained in the Timucuan Preserve?
Several distinct spaces make up the Preserve. Reviewing the option available for each can help identify which most interests you and your family or guests. The diversity available can make for many fascinating and different trips.
Fort Caroline National Memorial
Briefly, in the 1500s, the French had a presence in the Arlington area of Florida, Fort Caroline. Located near the River of May, currently the St. Johns River, the French settlement built in 1564 was quickly overcome by the Spanish the following year. The memorial interprets the first contact between French and Spanish colonials and the indigenous Timucua, battles among all the groups, and is the primary visitor center for the Timucuan Preserve. As no Timucua survive, the Preserve attempts to remember how this once vast population of 200,000 individuals might have lived.
Theodore Roosevelt Area
Named for the 26th President of the United States, the Theodore Roosevelt Area comprises 600-acres of hardwood forest, scrub, and wetlands. Grasslands intersperse with dense woods, threaded with trails. Expect encounters with animals both on dry land and in the water. Human habitation over hundreds or more years is evident in the ancient piles of oyster shells discarded by Indigenous peoples who lived or traveled to the area. Willie Browne, the last private owner, took care to keep these artifacts in place and intact for future generations.
Cedar Point at the south end of Black Hammock Island invites visitors to explore 400 acres of upland hammocks and salt marsh. Access is possible by both land and water. The remains of a 17th century Spanish Mission, Santa Cruz y San Buenaventura de Guadalquini, are visible in the area.
Zephaniah Kingsley, his family, and numerous enslaved people lived on Fort George Island from 1814 to 1837. Kingsley's wife, Anna Madgigine Jai, was from Senegal, West Africa, purchased by Kingsley as a slave. An active participant in the plantation, she owned land and enslaved people after Kingsley freed her in 1811.
In answer to laws preventing African-Americans from using public facilities, Jacksonville's Afro-American Life Insurance Company American Beach bought 33 acres on Amelia Island in 1935. Slowly before World War II and more quickly thereafter, black-owned structures and public spaces grew into a vibrant community for African-American residents and visitors. Hurricane Dora and the Civil Rights Act both impacted the island in 1964. The devastation of the storm and new opportunities under the law led vacationers to move to other venues. Currently in transition, American Beach is a quiet area now, looking forward to redefinition.
