Galt City
Is located on the Pensacola & Atlantic Railroad, fifteen miles East
of Pensacola, and midway between Escambia and Blackwater Bays.
Milton, a charming village of 1,500 inhabitants, and Blackwater, of
750, are located five miles east on the Blackwater.
GALT CITY is one of the most delightful places on the line of the P.
& A. R. R. for residence, or for those desiring to go into
Fruit Growing & Truck Farming.
The country for miles around is rolling, well drained and productive.
This is the place to locate if you wish to engage in gardening or fruit
growing. Being near Pensacola, you can ship by either water or rail.
Peaches, Apricots, Grapes, Pomegranates, Figs, Pears, and Pecans,
And all kinds of small fruits thrive. Of these the Strawberry, Raspberry
and Blackberry are especially profitable. Emigrants will do well
to bear in mind our choice five and ten acre blocks are just adapted for
enterprises of this description, while those desiring to farm on a larger
scale, or to go into stock raising, will find the surrounding country most
suitable.
The LeConte Pear, now almost as widely known as the Orange, and
even more profitable, finds here a most congenial soil and climate. For
a full description of this pear, send for Facts on Florida.
Perhaps no industry will equal in profits the culture of the Fig. It
grows rapidly from cuttings , and bears in about eighteen months. The
crop is never failing. The fruit dried, evaporated or preserved, is a delicacy,
and sells well in all markets.
Our beautiful Bays and Rivers
Furnish fine sport for the fisherman, and the surrounding woods contain
Deer, Wild Turkey, and smaller game.
The Finest Oysters in the Market
Are gathered in any quantity within two miles of this point.
A Delightful Winter Climate,
And the summer heat tempered by an unfailing Sea Breeze, will make
this one of the most popular health resorts in the South. Pure, soft
water is in abundance, and health-giving mineral springs are near.
Before the war these were the attraction to numbers of health-seekers
who came from all parts of the country and camped around them.
Agents wanted in every locality, to whom liberal commissions will be
paid.
Special Terms Made to Colonies and Permanent Settlers.
