The city of Jacksonville, Florida is located in the Northeastern corner of the state where the St. Johns River meets the Atlantic Ocean. According to the U.S. Government Census, the population in Jacksonville is 903,889, making it the most populated city in Florida. At 875 square miles, it is the largest city by area in the United States. Though today Jacksonville is full of culture and endless activities for whatever you may be in the mood for, it’s been a long road getting the city to where it is today.
The city has a long history from its first inhabitants around 500 BC, the Timucuan Native American tribes to Spanish and European settlements. In the mid 1500’s French settlers arrive from Europe and inhabited the land that was known as Fort Caroline. According to VisitJacksonville, this settlement didn’t last long. In 1565, The Spanish destroyed the fort. For nearly 200 years after the event, the Spanish lived off the land with the Natives assistance. They would later give up control of the land to the British following the Seven Years War.
Fast forward twenty years, the Spanish had once again gained control of the land after the Revolutionary War in 1783. After Several years, the Spanish ceded the Florida settlement to the United States and in 1821, Florida became a U.S Territory. In 1845, the territory became the 27th state of the United States of America. Today, Jacksonville is as lively as ever and is a hot spot for tourism and taking up residency. Because of its size it offers beautiful beaches and island state parks along with more rural areas like the Osceola National Forest. Between the two you’ll find yourself downtown along the St. Johns River surrounded by museums, hotels, pubs and restaurants, and parks. There are even a few nightclubs if the nightlife is what you’re looking for.
Since 1993, the city has been home to the National Football League’s, Jacksonville Jaguars. Their home stadium, TIAA Bank Field, in downtown Jacksonville boasts a 16-foot jaguar statue. Inside the stadium is home to two of the worlds largest video boards. According to Jaguars Fanguide, if the two screens were stood on their sides, they would be taller that the Statue of Liberty, in New York.
Whether it’s swimming and surfing at nearby beaches and islands, horseback riding through National Forests, catching a football game or relaxing with a drink at a riverside pub, it’s no wonder why homeowners seek out Jacksonville, Florida. Outside the downtown area, many rural areas offer single family homes. Most of which have an onsite wastewater system (septic system) present on the property. Being so close to the Atlantic Ocean and many properties along the St. Johns River, maintaining a healthy operating septic system is crucial to prevent pollution of waterways.
