A Fernandina Treasure

Mr. Ron Kurtz - as seen here through the window of Amelia Island Gourmet Coffee, Ice Cream and Fudge - is considered an island treasure around here. He used to be the director of the Amelia Island Museum of History and is still an authority on all things Fernandina. He's written a couple of books on the subject and is a great story teller to boot. If you ever see him in the coffee shop, just sidle up beside him and ask him something about the area. You'll be on the way to hours of entertainment.
