List of latitude and longitude coordinates for the portion of the Florida East Coast Railway running through Central Florida. Henry Flagler, prominent entrepreneur known throughout the state of Florida, founded the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) in 1895 after purchasing the Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Halifax, and Indian River Railroads. Flagler soon purchased other railroad companies and eventually spanned the whole state from Jacksonville to Key West. The FEC line runs through Seminole County just north of Lake Harney and continues south through Geneva and Chuluota. It eventually runs South into Orange County and ends in Lake Okeechobee.
