St. Teresa has been enjoyed by generations (as many as 6) of North Florida and South Georgia families. Much of its early history has been lost or is available only through private family records. Ed will utilize maps, letters, newspaper articles, photographs, local histories, deeds and other legal documents to trace the origin and development of this special community. Beginning with the Spanish explorations, Ed’s review progresses to the establishment of the community in 1873 and continues to the present day. He will describe the lengthy travels of early St Teresa families by train, boat and wagon bringing cows and chickens for their summer stay at St Teresa.
