The origins of the town of Laurel Hill are directly tied to the railroad. In 1883 the railroad from Pensacola to the Apalachicola River was completed, giving easy access to the interior of West Florida for the first time. In 1905 Laurel Hill was incorporated by the Florida legislature.
Today, Laurel Hill is undergoing a renaissance. In addition to their existing industrial park, commercial buildings are being renovated and put back into use. New houses are going up in town and surrounding countryside. The next hundred years should be as exciting as the last hundred.
