Mayport, Florida, is a picturesque community on the eastern coast of the United States, with a beautiful ocean view and abundant wildlife.
It is also home to a handful of historically African American institutions, including Mayport Academy, a boarding school that is one of the oldest in the state and was established in 1854.

Here’s what you need to know about the area.
Mayport’s history Mayport was a mining town in the early 1900s, and a small mining town for a small area of Florida.
In 1867, the town was renamed Mayport in honor of Mayport Mayor Thomas J. Maynes.
In 1870, the Mayport Mining Company (MMC) opened the first mining operation in the city.
It would later expand to include other mines in the area, including the first gold and silver mine in Florida, in 1872.
The Mayport Mine is now the largest gold and copper mine in the world.
Mayton, the city, is home to the Maypens Museum, a unique exhibit that features historical photographs and artifacts from Mayport.
The museum also features a children’s playground, a “pink box” ride and a “dive tank.”
