Jacksonville, FL, may not rank as one of the “largest” cities in the nation — but, in fact, it is. “THE” largest that is. At over 840 square miles in size, Jacksonville tops the chart in physical size in the continental U.S.
Named for U. S. President and Civil War General Andrew Jackson — who, by the way, never visited Jacksonville — Jax, or J’ville as it is often called, traces its site roots back to 2500 BC. The nation’s oldest pottery remnants (circa 2500 BC) were found on Black Hammock Island.
