Navarre, FL is an unincorporated community in Santa Rosa County that has a colorful history (as does most of Florida) and named after a province in Spain, also called Navarre.
It began with a large land purchase by Guy Wyman, a WWI US Army colonel who fell in love with a French nurse and "adopted" her because US immigration law forbade him to bring her home as his wife. He was forced to sell most of his land during the depression because he could not pay the taxes. The town and Navarre Park resulted from the sales of his property.
Navarre is a top Florida School District and is one of the fastest growing unincorporated cities in the state. The population increased from nearly 21,000 full-time residents in 2000 to 30,000 in 2005, and homes went from just over 5000 to 7947 during those five years. Tourism is an increasing commodity, and the community boasts a recreational park, boardwalk, water park, duck pond, and a butterfly house. It is also near the two military bases in the area, NAS Pensacola, Hurlbert Field, and Eglin Air Force Base.
Santa Rosa County administers the schools in Navarre, which includes two primaries, two middle intermediates, two middle schools, and a high school. Navarre is a quiet and beautiful place to live that offers a perfect area to raise a family.
Most Homes sold in Navarre over the past twenty years were in Holley by the Sea, the largest subdivision in Florida. Homes in this subdivision and its adjacent golf community, Hidden Creek, are much in demand because these subdivisions are well maintained and offer lots of amenities through its homeowner's association.
