Thursby House – Along the St. John’s River

with 6 comments

This is the Thursby house along the Saint John’s River in Central Florida – In 1872, the Thursby family built a large frame home atop the Indians’ shell mound, safe from the floodwaters of the St. Johns. The pilings of the steamboat dock remain, relics of a bygone era.
