Welcome to St. Joe Beach

In 1841, three-fourths of St. Joseph’s population succumbed to yellow fever that arrived on a Spanish freighter. The approximate 400 remaining residents fled after a major hurricane in 1844. Re-established in the 1920s, the resurrected city went industrial with the opening of the St. Joe Company’s paper mill in 1938. Workers were well paid and easily employed at the mill, in related forestry industries, or in maritime trades. Despite comparative prosperity from union wages and job security, the consistent paper mill stench sent most passers-by out of town quickly. Then the mill closed in 1999 bringing on a new era.
 
A gift of geography, Port St. Joe faces west, bringing stunning sunsets over Cape San Blas and St. Joseph Bay. Restaurants and a restored historic hotel take advantage of this, setting up tables and rocking chairs that are as comfortable for dining, sitting, and talking as they are ideal for photographers. The beaches at nearby Cape San Blas are rated tops in the world.
 
Now the St. Joe Company has plans to remake Port St. Joe and establish high-end developments and build a larger marina. Currently in the works is upscale Windmark Beach which includes plans for over 1500 home sites.
