A Historic Past
Folks have been calling Historic St. Andrews home for quite some time. In fact, locally found artifacts have shown the presence of Native Americans as far back as 13,000 years ago. Since then, various tribes have continued to plant their roots here, the Cherokee and Seminole being the most prominent.
By the mid-1800s, the area had transformed into a summer town, with visitors flocking to the bay for healthy sea baths and great fishing.
Visitors interested in discovering more about St. Andrews past will love the historic walking tour. This free, guided tour begins at the Panama City Publishing Co. Museum, continuing through several of the bay’s important landmarks.
