Port Orange in Volusia County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Florida Hammock Trail
The land had to be cleared to plant crops, build shelters and roads. The best roads were no more than trails. For that reason, all supplies and mail were brought in by boat. Everything produced for market, such as sugar from Dunlawton Plantation had to be shipped by boat until the railroads appeared in the 1800's and the interior of Florida was opened.
