Amelia Island belongs to a chain of barrier islands stretching from South Carolina to Florida. It is the southernmost of the Sea Islands and is 13 miles long and approximately four miles wide at its widest point. Amelia Island is home to the Fernandina Beach and Amelia City communities.
Named for Princess Amelia, daughter of George II of Great Britain, the island changed hands among colonial powers several times. Eight flags have flown over Amelia Island: French, Spanish, British, Patriot, Green Cross, Mexican, Confederate, and United States. (Wait that's only seven! Well, the Spanish conquered us twice!)
The Amelia Island Trail is now part of the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000 mile-long system of trails connecting Maine to Florida.
* There are seven golf courses on Amelia Island.

A lifelong familiarity with Nassau County, a proven track record in marketing for some of the nation's most prestigious brands, and a dedication to serving real estate sellers: It's a trifecta of qualities that only Amelia Island-based realtor Jason Mudd can offer – and one that will sell your home faster and at a higher profit for you.
"There's a real sense of community here," says Mudd, who is featured as a "Legendary Locals of Amelia Island" in a recently published book by local author Rob Hicks. "Nassau County is a beautiful, safe locale to raise children and is filled with passionate individuals who are community-, culture-, and arts-oriented – everything you could want in a small town."
He is also proud to be included among the likes of David Yulee and MaVynne “The Beach Lady” Betsch, two people who were influential in shaping the community’s history.
Mudd is a licensed Florida real estate agent working with broker Bobby Ferreira of historic John T. Ferreira & Son, Inc. Having lived in Amelia Island since childhood, Mudd has deep roots in Nassau County and knows just how to position and sell any area property.
He graduated from Fernandina Beach High School – the last class to attend the old high school and the new high school. After earning his degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia, he returned home to start a family with his wife, Tabitha. He is a partner at Axia Public Relations, serves on multiple advisory and directors' boards, spearheaded fundraising efforts for the county's first community skate park, and is an officer with Yulee's Grace Community Church.
Throughout his career, Mudd, an Emmy Award-winning speaker, author, and entrepreneur, has built an impressive reputation as an innovative and strategic marketer and public relations advocate, delivering coveted results for major brands, including American Airlines, Dave & Buster's, Hilton, HP, Pizza Hut, and Verizon. It's that proven track record of high-level marketing success that sets him apart from competitors.
"Research shows that 80% of homes listed as "For Sale By Owner" ultimately aren't sold by the owner," Mudd notes. "It's far more work than sellers anticipate."
If you're looking to sell your Nassau County home, let Mudd's unique expertise and skill set help secure you a quicker sale at a higher price point.
In Mudd's spare time, he enjoys morning walks on the beach with his wife, sports with his son, and the arts with his daughter. Giving back to the community is something he values, and it brings him great pride to watch the local youth enjoy skateboarding at the free community skate park, where he led the original fundraising efforts.
