Port Saint Joe

4.1
Port St. Joe is a city located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 98 and State Road 71 in Gulf County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census the population was 3,445. This was a decline from 3,644 as of the 2000 census. Port St. Joe became the county seat of Gulf County in 1965.HistorySt. Joseph was founded in 1835 by businessmen from nearby Apalachicola, which was troubled by legal conflict over land titles. It was mostly abandoned in 1841 after a yellow fever epidemic; hurricanes in 1843 and 1851 destroyed what structures remained. In the early 20th century a new settlement was founded close to the original after the arrival of the Apalachicola Northern Railroad in 1909. It appears that the more informal "Port St. Joe" was adopted for official use around this time.GeographyPort St. Joe is located in southern Gulf County at (29.807968, -85.297684), within the Florida Panhandle and along the Emerald Coast.
