As its name would suggest, this is a beachfront city on the Atlantic coast of Florida. After World War I, the land began to sell as it had before the war, and the settlement grew. The Town of Atlantic Beach was incorporated in 1926 and the first charter was adopted in 1929. The first Town Hall burned down in 1932, but a new one was quickly built in its place. Mayport Naval Station and the Mathews Bridge led to further development of the town.
