Because of its easy access to local waterways, the City of Mary Esther is noted as one of the first areas settled in this part of Northwest Florida. Mary Esther was incorporated in 1946.
Flanked by two United States Air Force bases, Mary Esther is nestled along the scenic Santa Rosa Sound. Though it only measures 2.5 square miles, it is a vibrant community that boasts an expansive shopping mall, a terrific library and a well-respected animal rescue center, not to mention a variety of eateries and small businesses all conveniently located off of Mary Esther Cutoff, which traverses the town.
