Sewall's Point

The State of Florida is a state in the southeastern United States. Florida is situated mostly on a large peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. It extends to the northwest into a panhandle, extending along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Florida's nickname is the Sunshine State but severe weather is a common occurrence in the state. It is bordered on the north by the states of Georgia and Alabama, and on the west, at the end of the panhandle, by Alabama.
The town of Sewall’s Point is located at the eastern edge of Martin county on a peninsula near the St. Lucie Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean. Henry Sewall, one of the heirs to the Hanson Grant, arrived with his wife in 1889 and gave a permanent name to the peninsular. In the beginning Sewall's Point meant exactly what it was said as the point of the peninsular that belonged to Henry Sewall. He built his home on the riverbank and established the peninsular's second post office in 1891.
The dock jutted out into the Indian river at its confluence with the St. Lucie River and once it was in place, everyone traveling north or south would stop there. Originally it was a community of part time residents and retirees. In recent years the town has changed with an influx of many younger families and full time residents. The town is now blessed with an excellent school system in Martin county.

The residents of this town enjoy miles of scenic waterfront views of St. Lucie River to the west and the Intracoastal waterway to the east. It is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Florida, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die hard travelers the world over. The city has undergone some improvement in various fields and enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
