Ponte Vedra Beach, North Florida's most prominent resort address had a humble beginning. In the early 1900's, Ponte Vedra Beach was nothing more than a pristine wilderness of sand dunes, swamps, alligators and palmetto trees. 
In 1912, a vein rich in minerals was discovered running through the dunes. These minerals; rutile, ilmenite and zirconium, were found to be of tremendous value in the processing of steel. The site soon evolved into a frontier mining town with worker's quarters, a post office and general store. 
A successful mining corporation, The National Lead Company, purchased the rugged outpost as well as several thousand acres of the mineral rich property and, in support of the United States' war effort during World War I, mined the area for the valuable ore. Mining operations ceased shortly after the war ended and the company began to sell off their large real estate holdings in the area. 
The transformation from former mining town to nationally recognized seaside community began in the early 1920's when local land planners skillfully developed the area to maximize its natural beauty.
