Kings Ferry Historical Marker Dedication
The second phase included several text-editing and review meetings with the State of Florida and months of fundraising projects and events to pay for the state-sanctioned marker. A wooden directional signpost pointing toward the various locales along the river and road will be erected beside the marker. Historical Society President Emily Baumgartner will preside over the 30-minute ceremony where guests will be welcomed, donors acknowledged, and the marker unveiled.
The Nassau Board of County Commissioners will also be thanked for approving the marker location at the county-maintained boat ramp located at the end of Bill Johnson Road. Other group members will serve light refreshments. The public is invited to attend but are encouraged to bring their lawn chair as seating and parking are limited. The boat ramp will be closed to boaters the morning of the ceremony. Kings Ferry is located at the north end of CR 115A about 13 miles northeast of the town of Hilliard.
