Rails into the Sun: A History of North Central Florida Railroads with Jonathan Nelson
This presentation will introduce the railroad's contribution to the development of Florida, with the primary focus on Alachua County railroads.

The construction of David Yulee's first cross-state railroad in the 1850's linked Florida with two oceans, and made possible the mass migration of people and cattle. This put Gainesville on the map, and caused Alachua County to boom, a trend that continues to this day!
