Fun Facts: How Jacksonville got its name

Jacksonville Fl

It wasn’t the town’s first name.  Settled by the English who drifted down from Georgia, they set up shop around a shallow ford across the St. Johns River, calling the place “Cowford.”  When Florida was ceded to the U.S. in 1819, Andrew Jackson became the first provisional governor, hence, Jacksonville.

Like I said in my video testimonial I am almost at a loss for words when speaking about my experience with Nextage Team Realty. I was in a tight situation and needed to get his house sold fast due to my new job in St. Louis. I contacted Joi at Nextage and we were able to get his house under contract in less than two weeks. Just amazing. Thanks again.
