Dunedin reflects the rich American and Scottish heritage of its founding fathers. This charming village-like town has the distinction of being the oldest town south of Cedar Key. Early in its history, thanks to a dock built to accommodate schooners and sloops and the ingenuity of pioneers from as near as Georgia and as far as Scotland, Dunedin became one of Florida's chief seaport and trading centers. The first land deed was recorded in 1852 by Richard L. Garrison, only seven years after Florida became a state. The town became incorporated in 1899, and a city in 1925.
Today, Dunedin's village-like atmosphere, natural wooded and subtropical settings, three and a half miles of picturesque waterfront and a relaxed lifestyle has lured people for decades from around the world.
