Seminole Hills Plantation

In the 1920s Seminole Hills was the largest plantation in Bay County, FL. In 1927 it had grown to 150 houses and had a post office, school, commissary, hotel and a church. Unfortunately, the town disappeared shortly after the stock market crash in 1929, which halted funding and business in the town. Historic flooding in 1929 and the Bahamas hurricane could have contributed to the town's demise. In 1930 the post office closed and the land was auctioned off. No trace of the town remains, except a few nondescript dirt roads.
