Hwy A1A – Further Afield

Florida Highway A1A jogs off the coast on Amelia Island and enters the coastal forest in Nassau County.

American Beach on Amelia Island.  Florida’s first black millionaire, Abraham Lincoln Lewis was president of the Afro-American Life Insurance Company.  He founded the community in 1935 as a refuge from segregation.

The Mayport Ferry fills the gap as A1A crosses the St. Johns River between Ft. George Island and Mayport, Fl.
