With the Amelia Island Museum of History’s innovative walking tours, your cell phone will be your key to unlocking the stories of Fernandina Beach’s past! Starting at the old train depot, you will walk to ten distinctive destinations that make Fernandina Beach memorable. In this tour you will be exposed to the beautiful Victorian architecture of buildings like the Tabby House, Bailey House, and the Florida House Inn, and hear the history of Florida’s oldest continually operating bar – the Palace Saloon. You will also learn about the First Presbyterian Church, which was attended by the nation’s first Jewish Senator, David Yulee. Cell Phone Tours are $5 and may be purchased at the Museum.
