Florida's panhandle was once covered with a virgin forest, thick stands of longleaf pines and hearty cypress. William Henry Wesley set up his lumber company half way between today's Fort Walton and Panama City. The Wesley Lumber Company utilized the dense panhandle forests and took advantage of easy access to the Gulf of Mexico for lumber transport. A small city grew up around the mill, with 20 company owned houses.
