Overview

Florida's Old King's Road ran from Georgia south of Jacksonville (the called Cow Ford), to St. Augustine, thru what is now Flagler County Florida and ended in New Symrna on Florida's Atlantic Coast. It was once named one of the most important highways in America. It has vanished.

This is the history of Old King's. It covers historian Bill Ryan's effort to locate events including the great slave rebellion of the Second Seminole War, the Minorcans, large Plantations, and the many events that happened from 1783 to 1914 along this roadway once called "The most important civil engineering project in America." Slave rebellion, anxious refugees, British soldiers, planters, and seekers of a new life in Florida all used Old King's Road. It even fed the Confederate Army with herds of Florida beef and salt during the Civil War. There are many stories along his historic route.

Three major books resulted from this study including:
"Osceola His Catpure and Seminole Legends"
"I am Grey Eyes"
"Bulow Gold"
all cover events on this colonial era highway built prior to the American Revolution.
