Lumbermen, farmers, ranchers and mercantile owners established a trading center on the crest of the Yellow and Shoal
rivers by the late 1800's. The Pensacola and Atlantic Railroad began building a track between Pensacola and the Apalachicola
River in 1881. It was the first passenger and freight railroad track laid in northwest Florida. The railroad station was named
Crestview due to the elevation of the crest at 235 feet above sea level, which makes the city the second highest elevation
