Blood in the Water
16th Century Spanish Conquistador, and first European to step foot in Florida. Don Juan Ponce de Leon, was the former first mate of Christopher Columbus, former first Spanish Governor of Florida – and something of a madman, convinced that he would find the fabled Fountain of Youth on the Isle of Biminy. He never found Biminy, instead landing here – on the Shores of San Augustin.
He died several years later.
