Overview


After seeing its golden age in the 1800s and early 1900s, Amelia Island slipped into a calm and quiet slumber for most of the 20th century; nevertheless, the local paper mills provided an important economic base that brought people and jobs to the area.

Throughout that transformation, local residents worked hard to keep the small-town feel, natural surroundings, and historic relevance intact.
