The “Crossroads of Flagler County,” Bunnell www.bunnellcity.us 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-rule periods, the area is known for its agricultural and timber products. Bunnell, with a population of 3,276 in 2020, offers residents a small- town atmosphere adjacent to its larger neighbor, Palm Coast www.palmcoastgov.com, to the east.
