Other major industries in the area are financial services, construction, information services, biomedical technology, consumer goods, insurance, and consumer goods.

Welcome to “Jax,” “J-ville,” and “The Bold new City of the South.” Jacksonville, Florida is the largest city, in terms of land area, in the contiguous United States. With over 1,100 sq. miles of land, the city is home to over 800,000 people and the largest urban park system in the nation. It is also a transportation hub for the entire American Southeast, linking Florida to the East Coast states. Some notable people to come out of Jacksonville are: astronaut Norman Thagard, MLB star Chipper Jones, NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, serial killer Otis Toole, Florida Governor W. Haydon Burns, country singer Tim McGraw, rock singer Scott McKenzie, Lynard Skynard’s Ronnie Van Zant, and acclaimed director/Limp Bizkit lead singer Fred Durst.
Native American tribes lived in present day Jacksonville for thousands of years before Europeans showed up. Pottery dating back to 2,500 BC has been found in the region. In 1564 the French explorer René Goulaine de Laudonnière established Fort Caroline on the St. Johns River, spreading smallpox and all sorts of diseases to the region’s native inhabitants. A year later, the Spanish attacked Fort Caroline, killed nearly all the French people inside, and renamed the fort San Mateo. As you can see, even very on modern Jacksonville was a hotly contested region.
Spain controlled the Florida territory until 1763, when it ceded the area to the British. However, after the British lost the American Revolutionary War, it gave the territory back to Spain. In the early 1800s, slaves from Georgia escaped to Florida in large numbers. General Andrew Jackson knew how to fix this problem-> invade Florida. In 1821 Spain officially ceded Florida to the United States. American settlers moved into Florida and in 1832, built a town on St. Johns River. They named the town “Jacksonville” after President Andrew Jackson. The city soon became a major transportation hub for commercial activity in the South.
Around the turn of the 20th century, Jacksonville was a vacation spot for the rich and famous. During the Gilded Age, tourists shuttled into the city by railroad and steamboat. This helped fuel Jacksonville’s post-Civil War growth. Between 1901 and 1912 over 13,000 buildings were constructed in the city. Although Jacksonville continued to grow throughout the 20th century, it never lost touch with its Southern pride. Today, there are several government buildings, memorials, and schools in Jacksonville named after famous Floridians, Confederate heroes, and even Ku Klux Klan founders.

According to 2010 Census data, 821,784 people live in Jacksonville. This makes Jacksonville the most populated city in Florida and 11th most populated city in the U.S. The city’s population has grown every decade except during the 1950s. After WWII, new highways and suburban communities arose and pulled people away from the city. In the early 1960s political corruption and the Duval County public high schools’ los of accreditation led many people to call for government reform. In 1968 voters approved a referendum to consolidate Jacksonville and the suburban communities of Duval County under one central government. Over night, the city’s population spiked and it became, at the time, the nation’s largest city by land area.
Jacksonville’s population is younger than that of Florida. Many people who retire and move down to Florida prefer to live in Miami Beach or Tampa Bay rather than Jacksonville.
