Amelia Island is one of the most historic places in Florida with more than 400 years of recorded history under eight flags. First inhabited by the Timucuan Native Americans, the flags flown over the island have included those of France, Spain, England, the Patriots of Amelia Island, the Green Cross, Mexico, the Confederate States of America and the United States. Those wanting to learn more about the history of the island can visit the Amelia Island Museum of History and take one of the walking tours provided by the museum staff. Some of the walking tours go through downtown Fernandina Beach, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to many 19th century Victorian mansions.
