The “Crossroads of Flagler County,” Bunnell was incorporated in 1913 and has served as the county seat since the Northeast Florida county was established in 1917. The community grew up along the railroad system Henry Flagler established to transport passengers and goods throughout the state and lies along U.S. 1 west of Interstate 95.
With historical roots reaching into ancient native cultures and both the Spanish and British ruling periods, the area is known for its agricultural and timber products. Bunnell, with a population of 2,741 in 2013, offers residents a small-town atmosphere adjacent to its larger neighbor, Palm Coast to the east.
Preserving the area’s heritage: Holden House and Annex Museum and home to the Flagler County Historical Society; nearby Bulow Plantation Ruins on Old King’s Road, placed on National Register of Historic Places in 1970, and Bulow Creek State Park on Old Dixie Highway.
