Heading north towards the Amelia River is a beautiful Spanish town dating back to 1811 when the land was platted into lots called “peónia” this is the only town in Florida with the original site plat remaining. A peónia (pay-oh-NEE-a) is 17 varas (46.5 feet) by 34 varas (93 feet) or 4,325 square feet. This was the amount of land that a Spanish foot soldier (a peón) would have received in exchange for his part in the conquest. The ‘long’ side of the peónia runs North-South; on the East and West of each block, peónias are divided in half and are called ‘media peónias.' A selection of old and new homes are located in the original grid which encompasses some 26 blocks offering 146 total buildable lots. Some of the original platted area has been lost to erosion from the Amelia River and reconstruction of 14th Street. Included in the original plat was the Plaza de la Constitution (Plaza San Carlos) which occupies a full block of green space overlooking the active Amelia River near the entrance to the Atlantic Ocean. This area is a beautiful quite enclave for nature lovers with unpaved streets, river views and a spectacular front row seat to Florida wild life. This revitalized community is experiencing a renaissance boosting a very 'active membership' - learn more about Old Town at For boat lovers, nearby Tiger Point Marina is conveniently located on Egan's Creek offering a full service marina.
