Summary

The panhandle of Florida in the nineteenth century was a time of flux and hosted an array of settlement types across the landscape - from small, single family homesteads to larger established communities all exhibiting physical evidence of domestic and industrial land use over time. As the primary context for human behavior, the landscape shaped by early settlers of Florida can also reveal the economic class and social standing of those that lived there, with evidence of such found in structural remains, historical documents, material culture, topographic features, living plants, and oral traditions. Historic sites evaluated by Amec Foster Wheeler at Eglin AFB and Tyndall AFB illustrate a broad range of historic habitation sites types within the region. A comprehensive study of these sites shed light on the evolution of landscape in terms of the interrelationship of changing industrial and domestic settlement patterns and landform use throughout the nineteenth century.
