(The King's Highway)

In this vicinity was the Indian trail which, during the period of Spanish occupation, became known as El Camino Real or King's Highway. This road, connecting St. Augustine and Pensacola, Florida, crossed the Flint River at the trading post of James Burges, near the present Bainbridge. In 1778, during the English occupation of Florida, Joseph Purcell made a map showing this road
