Green Cove Springs hosted a Memorial Day Festival today in Spring Park. The activities took place behind City Hall in the riverfront Park. Green Cove Springs was founded in the 1800s as a popular tourist destination. When the railroad extended to Miami, the town lost its tourist base, but the sleepy town is poised for growth when the real estate market turns. The Parade of Flags was a sober reminder of the sacrifice of the brave men and women we remember today who gave their all in defense of freedom. The Festival had over 30 booths with crafts, information, and wonderful food. Our friends George, Karen and children came with Karen's outstanding Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice. Plus, the best brownies on the planet! There was live entertainment by groups and individuals of all ages. Ci...

Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club in Green Cove Springs, Florida is a lovely community just off Highway 17 as you cross Governor's Creek bridge. Magnolia Point was developed in the 1980s. It was the second guard-gated golf and country club in the area, following the popular Ravines Golf & Country Club. Both courses were designed by Mark McCumber of Ponte Vedra Beach. I remember when Magnolia was brand new and seemed so far out! Now it's just down the road since Fleming Island was developed. Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club is a 1000 acre community which features a 27 hole golf course. The grill located in the bottom floor of the clubhouse is aptly named - The 28th Hole. Their web site says the Magnolia Point Golf Course is "touted as the best layout in North Florida with as many as 1...

  Welcome to our Charming small town.   The City of Green Cove Springs    The area was first settled in the mid 1800's and was called White Sulfur Springs. The spring in the mid 1850's made the area a tourist destination, as some believed the warm sulfur waters were medicinal. A few of the more notable visitors that vacationed here were the Astor's, the Vanderbilt's and Henry Flagler, who with his railroad was a major catalyst in Florida's growth.   In the 1850's about 1500 people lived in Green Cove, today that number is about 6,000, in town. The population in the greater Green Cove area is approximately 24,000; even with our growth we still have that relaxed, friendly small town flavor.   Green Cove Springs is growing, with places like, Magnolia Point, a gated, golf course community, ...

    For Northeast Florida it is the beautiful St. Johns River. The St.Johns begins its journey to the north 310 miles south of Jacksonville in the general vicinity of Melbourne Florida, as an area of wetlands.     By the time it reaches my "Old Florida" hometown of Green Cove Springs, on her west bank,  St Johns requires that the Shands Bridge span a 1 mile arc over her wide flowing water, with abundant fish, wildlife, birds, grasses and cypress trees, to where her east bank meets St. Johns County, to find waterfront estates, Julington Creek Plantation and the new Rivertown development.   As she moves north from Green Cove Springs. Her waters spill into the Black Creek, a haven for people that love the water for living and recreation, boating, jet skiing, fishing and all things to do wi...

What a fun time we had visiting the vendors, eating scrumptious Bar-B-Q and curly fries and watching the parade! It was honestly like stepping back to my childhood. Here are some photos of the activities in and around Walnut Street in Green Cove Springs FL yesterday. Frank and I enjoyed visiting with Sherry Faye who was helping her daughter run a booth for her Flower and Gift shop on Highway 16. We tried to convince her to buy one of our historic listings! Either one would be perfect for their shop.         There were dozens of booths with home  made crafts, art work, jewelry and food. There is a $50 fee to reserve a space for the day. Each vendor supplies their own tents, tables, etc. In 1999 there were only 8 booths participating, so they have really come a long way. Walnut Street is ...
