Welcome to the First Coast Beaches!! The Beaches Museum & History Park is owned and operated by The Beaches Area Historical Society, Inc., a nonprofit organization located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Through its exhibitions, educational programs, lecture series, children’s workshops, archives, research facilities and collections, the Society serves the beach communities of Greater Jacksonville (Mayport, Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, and Palm Valley). The Society was founded in 1978; in 2006 a new building was opened housing the Beaches Museum & History Park. The Society collects and preserves artifacts, documents, and photographs that directly relate to the Beaches history and heritage, and manages adjoining Pablo Historical Park with three historic buildings and a special exhibit building featuring a 1911-steam locomotive.
