Did you know the area of northeast Florida we call Nassau County is one of the oldest counties in Florida with a fascinating history that dates back to the mid-16th century? Being the only county in the U.S. that has been occupied by the French, Spanish, British, and Americans, Revolutionary War and Civil War action, Nassau County tells the outstanding story of industry, agriculture, and life in early days of Florida.
We are proud to be situated in such a remarkable locale – here’s a glimpse of the old days of Nassau County.
In 1562 the French took first possession of Nassau County inhabited by Native Americans, but only for a short time. Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez drove out the French in 1565. Under the occupation of Menendez, the Spanish influence dominated the island and mainland Nassau County throughout the 16th and 17th centuries, which was the first of two Spanish colonial periods in Florida history.
Florida was transferred to the British by the Treaty of Paris in 1763 along with all of the east coast. Under the rule of the British, they brought the plantation system that would survive for nearly 100 years and a program of development and construction to Nassau County.
By 1783, Florida had again transferred back to the Spanish re-establishing a land-grant system and plantation system and fostering the first real land boom. With the beginning of pirates and slave runners, Amelia Island and Fernandina became a slave smuggling port with the rapid growth of population and sailing vessels anchored in the harbor. In 1821, Florida was ceded to the United States and Nassau County became a part of Duval County until 1824 when Nassau County would break away.
The American Civil War broke out in Charleston harbor in 1861 which, in return, brought a Union invasion of Amelia Island the following year. Union troops commenced destroying the railroads, offices, rolling back and removed the rails up to the mainland. With so many wealthy landowners leaving the area, slaves were released from bondage and scattered to their own settlements such as Franklintown on the south end of Amelia Island.
The significant economic boom began with the paper industry in the late 1930s. Container Corporation of America (today’s WestRock) planted its roots in Fernandina, establishing a paperboard mill, which began production in 1937. This changed the course of history here in Nassau County. Today, WestRock’s Fernandina plant produces 155,000 metric tons of softwood cellulose specialties per year. It contributes $35 million annually to Florida’s wages and salaries and $2 million to Florida’s property and sales taxes. Ranked among the nation’s top 50 exporters, the plant ships products to five continents and 80 ports around the world.
Understanding the significance of Nassau County’s history and nature, today’s settlers value these tributaries for their natural state, rich history and tradition. They appreciate the opportunity to explore these untouched, protected areas with generations to come. As the newest community in Nassau County, Tributary recognizes the history and the importance of preserving this dynamic land, with much of the land being preserved within and around the community. Tributary is where people will celebrate the natural surroundings as part of the community’s vision and design.
It’s a model lifestyle for tomorrow, waiting to be discovered today. The perfect place to call home. Within the 1,550-acre master-planned community, residents will enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, resort-style pool, fitness center and activities at the fun-filled Amenity Center. New modern-rustic homes will be offered from the $200s, interested homebuyers can join the VIP list at tributaryfl.com to ensure they are first to learn of any updates as we approach the grand opening of model homes late this summer.
Nassau County is one of the fastest-growing communities in Florida. In other locations, critical services tend to come much later in the process as health care providers wait for critical mass. Here in North Florida, the medical community is leading the way, driving high demand for new homes and facilities for its health care providers. Nassau County is welcoming four new healthcare innovators to the community with open arms – UF Health, Baptist Health, River City Rehabilitation Center, and Memorial Hospital. The expansion of the medical industry is a key component to creating a thriving community in Nassau County, creating both high-paying new jobs and top-notch services for the broader community.
UF Health is the region’s premier academic health center hub for clinical research and unique provider of advanced patient care leading the industry as a leader in the education of health professionals. On December 6th the new UF Health medical office opened its doors in Nassau County! According to UF Health, this is “the first step in a strategic health alliance between UF Health, the University of Florida, and Raydient Places + Properties offering high-quality health care for residents in the surrounding communities.” The building includes an urgent care center, family medicine, imaging, lab services, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and adult and pediatric dentistry. The residents of Nassau County will be among the fortunate members to receive a wide range of high-quality health care services and job opportunities.
Baptist Health is also under development in Nassau County. This new hospital and wellness facilities will provide a full spectrum of in and outpatient services and 24-hour emergency care. As a result of tireless commitment of trained doctors and nurses, Baptist Health was recognized as the only system in North Florida to receive a Magnet recognition, a program that presents attraction and retention of professional nurses. The new Baptist Health will be fully integrated within Baptist Health hospital system delivering quality care and adding convenience to the residents of North Jacksonville.
This newly constructed rehabilitation center will serve the senior residents of North Florida starting in March 2020. The new center consists of 116 dually certified beds in 81,000 square feet and spans 10 acres in size. Services will include three gyms and a therapy courtyard with an emphasis on physical, speech and occupational therapy. An oxygen delivery system will be installed in several rooms. The new facility features an ultra-modern design and state of the art equipment allowing the facility to provide residents unparalleled short-term rehabilitation along with long term care.
Another health care provider has a facility planned within a mile of Nassau County. HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Memorial Hospital purchased 55.28 acres for 15.8 million and will be under development. “It will allow us to establish a future presence in Nassau County and to align with the planned growth in the region,” said Bradley Talbert, CEO of Memorial Hospital. The medical team is delighted to be part of the Nassau Community and serve the area’s fast-growing medical needs. Located directly at Interstate 95 and Florida A1A, this memorial site will play an important role in Nassau County’s medical community.
For those new homebuyers who are focused on living a healthy lifestyle, the next exciting opening will come this summer. GreenPointe Developers will be unveiling Tributary, an exciting master-planned community just minutes from the new medical centers.
