One of the best features of living on Amelia Island (and there are many) is the history we bump into each day.  This photograph was in the window of one of our shops downtown (Twisted Sisters) and I was lucky enough to get a good shot of it.  Thanks to historical advocates and the Amelia Museum the island has a large historic district. Just walking it and noting historical markers is a learning experience.
For a little place: twelve miles by three miles, it is chalk full of the past.  You have to take your time and saunter, perhaps take a Ghost tour (yep, we have those,too), or just a sweet and slow buggy ride to soak it all up.  We are not Charleston or St. Augustine, but I like us just fine. 

Stay tuned for more historical facts....
