Florida East Cost Railway

Henry Flagler established the Florida East Coast Railway in the 1880s connecting tourists and transporting citrus from Jacksonville to Miami, all in under 24 hours. For years, Rockledge was the southern-most terminal bringing northerners down to enjoy Florida’s warm weather.  The railroad service offered a more direct, reliable route than the meandering steamship transportation of earlier days.
