Living in Jacksonville, FL
The area of present day Jacksonville has likely been inhabited for thousands of years as evidence by recent discoveries of pottery that dates to 2500 BC. In 1562, the first European explorers arrived and colonies were established by the French, Spanish and British. Over the next two centuries, Florida was alternately controlled by the Spanish and the British, with Spain finally giving the Florida Territory to the United States in 1821. It was at that time that settlers near a crossing of the St. Johns River began their town, naming it for Andrew Jackson, the first military governor of the Florida Territory, and later President of the United States.
Today, Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida as measured by its population and land area. The city's population tops 800,000, while the entire Jacksonville metro region has a population of 1.3 million.
