It was mostly abandoned in 1841 after a yellow fever epidemic; hurricanes in 1843 and 1851 destroyed what structures remained. In the early 20th century a new settlement was founded close to the original after the arrival of the Apalachicola Northern Railroad in 1909. It appears that the more informal "Port St. Joe" was adopted for official use around this time.GeographyPort St. Joe is located in southern Gulf County at (29.807968, -85.297684), within the Florida Panhandle and along the Emerald Coast.
