Jacksonville and our Weather

History

The history books tell a story of adventures and battles  in Jacksonville, also known as The River City, and the First Coast.  Over a span of a few hundreds years, and the area's unique location, the first settlement in the area was made, more than 6,000 years ago by the Timucua Indians in the vicinity of modern-day downtown Jacksonville.

European explorers first arrived in 1562 and established the first European settlement at Fort Caroline two years later. In 1565, a Spanish force attacked Fort Caroline from the nearby Spanish settlement of St. Augustine and killed all the French soldiers defending it (except Catholics). The Spanish renamed it, Fort San Mateo. Two years later, the French recaptured the settlement from the Spanish and slaughtered all of the Spanish defenders. After the initial destruction of Fort Caroline, St. Augustine became the most important settlement in Florida. Florida was a Spanish possession until it became a territory of the United States in 1821. The town government was approved in 1832.

During the American Civil War, Jacksonville was a key supply point for hogs and cattle leaving Florida and aiding the cause.

During Reconstruction, Jacksonville and nearby St. Augustine became popular winter resorts for the rich and famous. Visitors arrived by steamboat and later by train. In 1901 downtown Jacksonville was ravaged by a fire that was started at a fiber factory. It was one of the worst disasters in Florida history, and the largest urban fire in the Southeast; it destroyed the business district and rendered 10,000 residents homeless in the course of eight hours.  More than 13,000 buildings were reconstructed between 1901 and 1912.

Jacksonville soon became a major banking and insurance center. The U.S. Navy also became a major employer and economic force during the 1940s, with the installation of three major naval bases in the city. 

Today, Jacksonville is an exciting city, a growing foodie and brewery town, that maximizes its natural attributes and reaches out to welcome visitors.
