Callahan, Hilliard & Bryceville

Discover rural communities for families with a hometown feel

Callahan, Florida


Centered at the junction of Florida A1A, US 301 and US 1, Callahan's slogan is "Crossroads to the Future."

Incorporated in 1911, Callahan originally boomed during the construction of David Yulee's trans-Florida railroad, and the dozens of trains that run through the community daily still provide the sights and sounds of a busy railroad junction. Callahan's estimated population is around 1,597. 


Named after Cuyler Walter Hilliard who co-founded the Hilliard & Bailey lumber company in 1881, the Town of Hilliard was incorporated in 1947. 

Nassau County's second largest municipality, Hilliard has a population of 2,988. The greater Hilliard zip code area, which includes the northwest Nassau communities of Boulogne and Kings Ferry, has a population of around 9,129.


When George W. Bryce changed a post office name in 1886, unincorporated Bryceville was born. Located in the southwest section of Nassau County at the intersection of US 301 and County Road 119, Bryceville retains an "old Florida" feeling. The Bryceville zip code area has a population of around 3,325. Bryceville is home to an elementary school, post office, library and fire station.
