Description

Live oak trees along Mellonville Avenue in the early 1900s. In 1836, the United States Army built a road (present-day Mellonville Avenue) to a location called Camp Monroe during the Second Seminole War. One year later, a group of Seminoles attacked the camp and killed a Captain Charles Mellon. A fort was built on the former campsite and named after the fallen captain, Fort Mellon. After the Seminole Wars and Florida becoming a state in 1845, the new town of Mellonville was established where it became the gateway for people wanting to settle in the Florida wilderness.
