This part of town extends from north of the Castillo San Marcos (The Fort) to the City Gates to the North, west to the San Sebastian River and east to the Intracoastal Waterway. The Minorcans first settled this land in the late 1700s as farmland and then the English gave 50 land grants with the goal of the settlement of St Augustine being totally self-sustaining. Most of the land on either side of the San Sebastian River was citrus groves. There are two historic homes that exist today which were built in 1880s: 23 Water Street and 19 Joiner Street and are excellent examples of this Territorial Period. Today there are a variety of architectural styles which include both Victorian and smaller Bungalows throughout the North City area. The most well known sites are the Mission of Nombre de Dios, The Fountain of Youth and the School for the Deaf and Blind.
