History & History Related Items

The Gulf Stream flows near this Florida area as it veers near land. This fact helped to name the small community. State Road A1A opened through here in 1916. A few years later, rows of Australian Pines were planted alongside the road as a windbreak. The trees grew rapidly and soon formed a canopy over the route creating a beautiful drive underneath. Most of the canopy has been destroyed except for a portion in Gulf Stream.
