Along the west bank of the North Indian River in the city of New Smyrna
The New Smyrna Beach Historic District, situated along the west bank of the North Indian River in the city of New Smyrna, encompasses the site of a failed British colonial settlement from the 1760s. Attempts were made to settle the site during the second Spanish colonial period (1784-1821), mostly by immigrants from the United States. Between 1800 and 1809, approximately 400 people moved to the area. Stone ruins located in Old Fort Park are believed to be from this era. After the United States acquired Florida in 1821, settlement increased until the Second Seminole War (1835-1842), when nearly every settlement along the coast of Florida south of St. Augustine was destroyed. The townsite of New Smyrna remained essentially uninhabited until the end of the Civil War. The arrival of promoter Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway in 1892 induced development as New Smyrna Beach became a summer and winter resort. Its principal economic resources were citrus production, commercial fishing, and tourism. The 1920s marked Florida's boom period--the boom was short lived, however, as Florida entered an era of depression in 1926, several years before the rest of the country. Buildings with architectural styles such as Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Bungalow, Beaux Arts and Mediterranean Revival, are all represented in the district.

Probably the most spectacular gallery at the Aquarium is the Coral Reefs Gallery. An artificial reef housed in a 500,000 gallon tank displays an intriguing diversity of inhabitants, among them squirrel-fish, angelfish, butterfly fish and flame-fish. We pause in front of the 14 foot high panoramic window and I am startled as a diver in a wetsuit and flippers emerges from behind a reef and waves to us, his cleaning tools in hand. "Another volunteer," explains Linda. "One of sixty or more who donate their time and effort to work at the aquarium year round." She pauses and chuckles. "In fact a few months ago, a couple of our volunteers divers opted to get married in that tank. As they were exchanging their vows, a moray eel swam right between them. The next day the newspapers printed the photograph, with the caption: "That's A-Moray!" .... read more about the Tampa Bay Aquarium - click here Wells Built Museum
