Jacksonville is in the First Coast region of northeast Florida and is centered on the banks of the St. Johns River, about north of Miami. The Jacksonville Beaches communities are along the adjacent Atlantic coast. The area was originally inhabited by the Timucua people, and in 1564 was the site of the French colony of Fort Caroline, one of the earliest European settlements in what is now the continental United States. Under British rule (British Florida), settlement grew at the narrow point in the river where cattle crossed, known as '''''Wacca Pilatka''''' to the Seminole and '''Cowford''' to the British.
