County Road 30A is home to about a dozen beach communities, many of which are shiny and new.

However, Grayton Beach is not one of those. In fact, Grayton Beach could be viewed as the mother of all 30A's beach communities, as it was here first.

Grayton was here before any thoughts of painting a house bright shades of sherbet entered any sane person's head, or thoughts of "needing" to provide entertainment for those who came to summer at the beach.


Early Settlers

Malcolm Patterson is one of the few who can remember "the good old days" when Grayton Beach was so quiet that you could hear a car coming long before you could see it, and everyone would get up to walk to the porch to see who it was.

Yes, those were the good old days.
