Chapter Meeting. “Florida's Royal Road”

Join Andy McLeod, Coordinator of Viva Florida 500 for the Florida Humanities Council, for a discussion on Florida's earliest roads.

Among the most important historic roads in the United States were those established by Spaniards. Archaeologists have located remnants of Florida's Camino Real which ran over 400 miles, roughly parallel to U.S. 90, from St. Augustine to Pensacola. This Royal Road reveals an abundance of Florida’s long, fascinating history

As we mark the 500th anniversary of La Florida this year, our state’s ‘Royal Road,’ or ‘Mission Trail,’ deserves greater attention for reasons of landscape beauty, education, preservation, recreation, and even commerce.

For information, contact Holly Parker (850) 567-3393.
