GREEN COVE SPRINGS – Clay County celebrated its 162nd birthday on Dec. 31.

Clay, Florida’s 37th County, was established in 1858, by carving out a section of Duval County in Northeast Florida. Clay County was named after American Statesman, and U.S. Senator from Kentucky, Henry Clay, who served as Secretary of State under John Quincy Adams.

According to the Florida Historical Society, Clay County was a popular tourist destination for northern tourists during the latter half of the 19th century. Visitors loved the exquisite natural beauty along the many waterways and enjoyed the therapeutic warm springs found throughout the county. Much of Clay County’s historic architecture still remains, including several churches that dot the landscape dating back to the mid-1800s.

Clay County Commissioners are celebrating the county’s birthday and the new year with a major announcement. It launched a new Clay County website that’s easy to navigate, pleasing to the eye and full of information right at your fingertips.
