Centered at the junction of Florida A1A, US 301 and US 1, Callahan’s slogan is “Crossroads to the Future.”
Incorporated in 1911, Callahan originally boomed during the construction of David Yulee’s trans-Florida railroad, and the 60 trains that run through the community daily still provide the sights and sounds of a busy railroad junction.
Home to one of the largest mulch manufacturing plants in the country, Callahan has a population of 1,167, and is the third most populous municipality in Nassau County FL. The greater Callahan FL zip code area, however, has a population of almost 14,000.
Callahan residents can choose among an increasing number of suburban residential developments or opt for a more rural lifestyle.
Callahan’s annual Railroad Days Festival in the spring attracts both railroad enthusiasts and locals to the town’s historic depot. The Northeast Florida Fair held in Callahan each October celebrates the region’s vibrant agronomy as well as delighting fair-goers with an extensive midway.
When George W. Bryce changed a post office name in 1886, unincorporated Bryceville FL was born.
Located in the southwest section of Nassau County at the intersection of U.S. 301 and County Road 119, Bryceville retains an "old Florida" feeling.
The Bryceville FL zip code area has a population of 3,325 and is home to an elementary school, post office, library and fire station.
