Our County

St. Johns County is one of the two original counties created when control of the Florida territory was ceded to the United States in 1821. The county was named for the St. Johns River and the county seat is St. Augustine. The original county encompassed all of peninsular Florida with Escambia County governing what is now the panhandle.
