Overview


The history of Santa Rosa County is closely associated with wood and water. Harvesting of the huge virgin pine trees that covered the area attracted industry and labor. Streams and rivers powered the machinery used to harvest the timber and also provided the means of transport. The sawmills, shipyards, turpentine stills, and related industries made Santa Rosa County the most industrialized county in Florida prior to the Civil War. After the war, the county rebuilt from the damage done not by raiding Yankee troops, but by retreating Confederates.

Meet the Author


In Santa Rosa County, author Laurie Green presents a well-researched look at the changes the area underwent from 1896 to 1946. Drawing on private collections as well as those of the Santa Rosa Historical Society, she presents a fascinating look at recognizable landmarks and notable people, as well as towns long since lost, such as Bay Point, Floridatown, and Mulat. Santa Rosa County is a lovingly crafted look at an area rich in tradition, an area built on wood and water.
