Town Sign

 thumbnail Century: Town Sign

April 8, 2001, marked the one hundredeth known date of the use of the name, "Century." The term was taken to describe the beginnings of the little sawmill town in Northwest Florida. Lore has it at that time the area was called "Teaspoon," the origin of which has several possible explanations. It is unlikely the area where the mill and the town were built was ever called "Teaspoon," since that entire 80 or so acres were the Mayo farm. If you want to find out more about a typical Southern mill town, visit the museums of the Alger-Sullivan Historical Society. [click here for info](http://www.algersullivan.org)
