Fleming Island Community Info

 

Nestled on the banks of the St. Johns River is lovely Fleming Island, Florida. Indian tribes and Spanish settlers originally claimed this tropical paradise. George Fleming, a prominent Irish immigrant, later received the island as a land grant from a Spanish governor. He created Hibernia Plantation which became a prosperous farm. George left the plantation to his son Lewis and daughter-in-law Margaret. The couple worked hard to build a lucrative resort that catered to northern vacationers. After Lewis's death in 1862, Margaret managed the plantation and resort for the rest of her life. Fleming Island is now a bedroom community near Jacksonville.

Along with plentiful recreational areas, history also left its footprint on this island. Two Fleming Island buildings stand on the National Register of Historic Places. Margaret Fleming dreamed of building a church on her plantation. Construction began on Margaret’s Chapel in 1875. Unfortunately, Margaret died of a heart attack before the chapel was finished. The first service in the chapel was Margaret’s funeral. There are beautiful Fleming Island Homes for sale in this area. Holly Cottage was also a part of Fleming family history. The cottage was built in 1898, and is a cherished piece of Real Estate in Fleming Island. The first owners used the cottage as a place to play cards or rest after hunting expeditions.
