St. Marys is a City with a storied history, hallowed traditions and a natural beauty that is blended together to create an environment that charms the visitor and makes them want to stay and linger awhile.
Our march through history starts with the Timucua Indian tribes who inhabited the region. They were supplanted by the English, French and Spanish explorers and their settlements. The Spanish missions established along our coastline grew and then dissolved as the English gained administrative control of the land and the sea surrounding our town.
The growth of the country and our City saw the American Revolution settle our borders with Florida. The War of 1812 witnessed its final battle along our shores and the City was burned by Yankee sailors during the Civil War. Fishing and shrimping fleets were joined by the forestry industry as we entered the 20th Century. Today we work in harmony with our new neighbors at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base and look toward exciting prospects for growth in the 21st Century.
Our citizens and visitors relish our small town atmosphere that focuses on family with multiple festivals like Mardi Gras, the Fourth of July, the Rock Shrimp Festival and finally the White Lighting at Christmas. With miles of pristine riverfront and marshland we offer an unfettered connection to our environment for all to enjoy.
We welcome you all to come and enjoy our special place on earth that we call the City of St. Marys and invite you to linger and stay awhile.
~Mayor John F. Morrissey
