Historical Marker - Site of the San Juan del Puerto
Spanish missionaries came to the Timucua population in Jacksonville looking to Christianize and colonize the local people during the 16th century. To facilitate this, The Mission of San Juan del Puerto was founded by the Franciscan Order of friars. The Mission was later destroyed in the early 18th century by the British Colony during an effort to take land from Spanish rule.
