“With all the development in St Johns County, it’s imperative that we preserve the history of the area for future generations. I’m proud to be a member of the William Bartram Trail Scenic Highway. My husband grew up here and my daughter is now growing up here. My hope is that our grandchildren will have the opportunity to enjoy learning about the history of the area.
