History Behind New Smyrna Beach

Historic Colonial Wharf built in the 17th Century has it’s roots in ancient Greece.

New Smyrna was named by Scottish physician Andrew Turnbull.

The Old Stone Wharf Archaeological Site was composed mostly of Coquina, a material that is made of shells and corral.

It is to be noted the “Turnbull Colony” was three times the size as the Jamestown Colony.
