Mexico Beach FL...We Invite You To Be a Part Of Its History!

Mexico Beach FL Real EstateThe origin of settlement in the Mexico Beach area are sketchy at best. Rumor has it, the coastal geographic region was utilized by Caribbean Pirates as a haven from bounty hunters back in the early 1800's. Some old timers have even whispered quietly of inland hideaways where grande stashes from their thievery were stowed away yet to be discovered

Modern, historical documentation came to the undeveloped area when in the 1920's the Florida Department of Transportation built (Scenic) US Highway 98. A gentleman, Felix DuPont, purchased the property now known as Mexico Beach around the turn of the century for the purpose of turpentine farming. Mr. DuPont farmed the plentiful pine trees for a number of years until he was approached by a group of investors anxious to relocate and proceed with business aspirations in 1946. A majority portion of geography we now know as the City of Mexico Beach was purchased for a ripe price of $65,000 on July 1, 1946. The investors incorporated, forming the Mexico Beach Corporation and set up an office at the County Line adjacent to a tavern holding the 17th liquor license issued to the State of Florida, Jack's Place. The $65,000 note, financed for 5 years at the then high interest rate of 4%, was satisfied in 6 months by sales of 50' x 150' lots.
