This highway follows closely the route of the old St. Johns Railway between Tocoi Landing on the St. Johns River and St. Augustine. Chartered in 1858. It was the first railroad to serve the city. Steam power was temporarily used on the line in the late 1860's, but later abandoned for mule teams. In 1878, steam engines were permanently installed. The Florida East Coast Railway acquired the road in 1888, and continued its operation until 1894.
