It was one of her life's dreams and today it is an important part of Fleming Island history. Margaret Seton Fleming wanted very much to build a church at her plantation on the banks of the St. Johns River on Fleming Island Florida. That dream was thwarted by life's events, including the burning of the family home, the death of her husband and the Civil War. Finally, in 1875, construction began on Margaret's Chapel. Sadly, the first service held in the new chapel on the grounds of Hibernia Plantation was Margaret's funeral, but her dream was realized and today Margaret's chapel still stands under the ancient mossy oaks down a sandy road at the southeastern end of Fleming Island. Margaret and Lewis are buried close by. Lewis' father, George, is the oldest grave in the cemetery. The Carpen...

Eagle Harbor on Fleming Island Florida is a great place to live and recently we witnessed one of the reasons - the caring nature of the residents. We brake for turtles! One day a few weeks ago, while driving from our home in Eagle Harbor to the Watson Fleming Island office, I noticed something in front of me on the road. Other cars and a golf cart had already stopped. A fairly large turtle was crossing the road, going from a pond on the golf course to another pond surrounded by homes. As we edged closer, the turtle retreated its head a bit and 'hopped' a couple of steps. What? I had never seen a turtle do this, but a man commented, "That's what they do." I'm not sure this is proper turtle mobility, but will do in an emergency - and having people watching you walk across the street proba...
