The historical community of Panama Park was first platted in 1879. Nestled between the Trout and St. Johns Rivers, the area was home to Northeast’s Florida’s first steam-powered saw mill in 1828 and also the Cummer Lumber Mill that was established in 1896 (the City’s largest employer for many years). As the terminus of two paved roads and with daily train service, the area was a popular destination for fishing, sailing, and picnicking for several decades. Real growth began in 1910, when George W. Clark Sr. began selling lots on fifty acres that he improved and provided with modern amenities.
