When the planners of places like Seaside wanted to recreate a classic Florida town, they looked to Historic Milton for inspiration. Years earlier, so did Frank Lloyd Wright, who saw St. Mary’s Church and pronounced it “a jewel created in the purest tradition of the Gothic Revival…purity.”

Blocks of historic homes and storefronts lead to the Blackwater River waterfront and tell the story of an old Florida town that grew from timber, turpentine and shipbuilding.
