Description

A color postcard featuring the railway station in New Smyrna, Florida, in the 1890s. Although the postcard does not specify, this railway station was likely the Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Indian River Railway Company (later part of the Florida East Coast Railway Company) station within the city. In 1892, Henry Flagler (1830-1913) extended the Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Indian River Railway Company to New Smyrna, which resulted in increased growth for the town.
