    Duval County Real Estate

    Locale – Duval County

    Duval County was created in 1822 from St Johns County and named for the 1822 – 1834 Governor William Pope Duval.

    Duval County extended from the Atlantic Ocean on the east to the Suwannee River on the west, north of a line from the mouth of the Suwannee River to the St Johns River in Jacksonville.

    A portion of Duval County was turned over to create Alachua, Nassau and Clay counties between 1824 and 1858. But Duval County gained in size when the southern and eastern area of the lower part of the St Johns River in St Johns County was transferred to Duval County in the 1840’s.
