Welcome to Hastings

The Town of Hastings is a community, “Small In Stature, But Big At Heart.”.

The Town of Hastings is surrounded by hundreds of acres of beautiful farmland, giving our area the title “Potato Capital of Florida”. Other produce such as broccoli, silver queen corn, sweet onions, and cabbage are also grown in the Hastings area.


Hastings officially received its charter in 1909 and Irish potatoes were the big money crop, earning the title “Florida’s Potato Capitol.” In 1917, the price of potatoes soared which allowed locals to buy cars, jewelry, furniture, and clothes while small businesses were able to expand. Agricultural pioneers like UJ White, WH Erwin, Frank Nix, and John T Dismukes introduced modern machinery and fertilization methods to improve crop yields.

Fun Facts About Hastings

The Town of Hastings, Florida, named after Thomas Horace Hastings (1860 – 1897), is located in the agricultural heart of the upper St. Johns River Valley 45 miles south of Jacksonville, 10 miles northeast of Palatka, and 15 miles southwest of St. Augustine. The area was first settled by Native-Americans about 3,500 years ago.

After the founding of St. Augustine by the Spanish in 1565, Fort Picolata, about 10 miles nort of present day Hastings, was established on the St. Johns River in the late 1600’s. The Fort was burned in 1740 by the British under Oglethorpe during the War of Jenkins’ Ear. The Fort was reconstructed in 1755 by the Spanish.
