Local history fans turned out in droves Monday evening to City Hall to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the founding of Fort Caroline.
The event included a ceremony that had Mayor Alvin Brown presenting several keys to the city for organizers and dignitaries, which was followed by a program by University of North Florida professors on the location and historical perspectives of Fort Caroline.
