Historic and picturesque Bagdad Village is located in Northwest Florida near the City of Milton. An oasis of peace, is located on the banks of the beautiful Blackwater River.
Bagdad is located at 30.58º North and 87.03º West of the prime meridian.
As early as 1840, Bagdad was a thriving port producing and shipping more yellow pine lumber than any port in the world. By 1900, Bagdad Village had become one of the most industrialized areas in the State of Florida.
Life in Bagdad centered around the saw mill and logging industries pioneered by Joseph Forsyth and partners. The daily thumps, clanks and whine of the mills continued for over 111 years until the Depression and depletion of natural resources silenced them forever in 1939.
