Homes for Sale in Ponte Vedra FL and Area Information
Located in St Johns County FL is the unincorporated seaside community called Ponte Vedra. Ponte Vedra is located just south of Jacksonville Beach, and just eighteen miles southeast of downtown Jacksonville and 26 miles north of St. Augustine. The area is known as Jacksonville Beaches consists of four beaches, they are Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach.
In the early 1900's, this area was called Mineral City. In 1912, a vein rich with minerals was discovered running through the sand dunes. These minerals including rutile, ilmenite and zirconium, were found to be of tremendous value in the processing of steel.
These minerals played a major role in the area developing into a mining town with worker's facilities, post office and a general store. The minerals lead to the National Lead Company purchasing the town along with several thousand acres.
To keep the workers happy, the National Lead Company created a nine-hole company golf course, this facility would later become the world-famous Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. The mine was in operation until the end of the First World War.
When it became less profitable to extract minerals from the sand, the National Lead Company brought in the Telfair Stockton Company to begin real estate development of the site. The name was changed to Ponte Vedra to attracted visitors and potential real estate investors.
The developers offered initial buyers deep discounts to encourage development and a small, existing golf course was enhanced and developed into the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.
In 1928, developers opened the now famous Ponte Vedra Inn Club. The club attracted the wealthiest families from all of Florida. They came for the sun, sand, and surf. They came for the sports and they came to socialize. The finest families came to meet other families of the same stature and this heritage continues today.
Due to the increased residential development, the State of Florida decided to complete the road from Jacksonville Beach south to St. Augustine.
By 1942, National Lead Company sold its interest in Ponte Vedra Beach to the Ponte Vedra Beach Corporation. The community rapidly developed into a year-round resort community with a permanent population. Today, Ponte Vedra Beach is considered one of the most luxurious recreational and residential locations in the country.
