St. Johns County

 

On July 21, 1821 Major General Andrew Jackson, Florida's first Territorial Governor, established St. John's County with St.

Augustine as the county seat.  It contained all of Florida east of the Suwannee River, approximately 39,400 square miles with ever

1100 miles of coastline.  Since 1821, more than 2/3 of Florida's present 67 counties have been carved from St. Johns' original

boundaries, reducing it to 609 square miles of land area.
