Read an Excerpt

Prior to 1925, Jacksonville beach was known as San Pablo and it grew around a railway network that formed part of Henry Flagler's East Coast Railroad. At the Pablo Historical Park, the railroad days are remembered inside the 1880's station building and outside with a 28 ton steam locomotive. Exhibits also document the almost forgotten aviation achievement of Army Air Corps Lieutenant James "Jimmy" Harold Doolittle, who in 1922 took off from San Pablo and 21 hours 28 minutes later landed in San Diego, California, completing the US's first single-day , coast to coast flight.
