Palm Coast in Flagler County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Old Highway A1A
In 1926, the Florida Department of Transportation constructed Highway A1A, originally named FLA 140, to serve the increasing numbers of tourists wanting to see Florida’s beautiful east coast. You are now looking at a place of American history — a segment of historic A1A is preserved here. In 1955, the highway was moved from this location to its current one further east at the request of Owen D. Young.
