PENNEY FARMS, FLORIDA. A PHILANTHROPIST'S DREAM


Penney Farms is an incorporated town of 749 people in Northeast Florida. It is located on State Road 16 between Green Cove Springs and Starke.

As you drive through you will think it's just another North Florida town with wide streets and large shade trees. The tidy wood frame houses and well kept masonry buildings will remind you of a time gone by.

If you stop to read one the historical markers in town, you will find out more about the story of this unusual little community.

August is one of our hottest months in Florida. At least most of the snowbirds have gone back North so the lines are shorter at our local restaurants.

ALL REGIONS
