As the county seat, the city of Crestview recieved it's name from it's placement on a peak of long woodland range between the Yellow and Shoal rivers. Incorporated in 1915, the town enjoys the enviable position of being located at the junction of three major highways: U.S. 90, State Road 85 and Interstate Highway 10. Hence it’s designation: the "hub" city of Northwest Florida. It’s $3.7 million "main street" renovation that spanned from 1997– 2003 sparked a renaissance for this friendly city that continues today.
