Local News

Meet our Niceville Historian – Elisa Mitchiner, a Swift Creek resident, is a descendant of three of the earliest families that settled the Niceville area.  Her interest in family and community history has resulted in a number endeavors to preserve our local history:

  • Established and maintains the Niceville, Florida Online History Center, a website providing more than 150 years of detailed history, including many photos from the past.
  • Documented information for the renaming of the Boggy Bayou Bridge in Niceville to the William Nathey Bridge during the 150th commemorative anniversary of the Nathey Gristmill built in 1857. (William Nathey was her great-great grandfather).
  • Brought attention to the Nathey Gristmill Stones now located at the Heritage Museum of Northwest Florida in Valparaiso.
  • Revealed through research that today’s name for Niceville had been Boggy. Post Office records reflect the name change to Niceville in 1910 when it was still in Walton County.
  • Instrumental in the change on the Niceville City Seal establishing the founding date of July 21, 1868 when the Florida Legislature authorized mail service to the community.

Since 2013, the Niceville Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp has become Elisa’s prime project. She has completed extensive research for the years 1933-1942 when Niceville became home to two CCC companies providing jobs for unemployed young men.  The initial Niceville camp was the first in the State of Florida. The CCC was instrumental in the development of many local infrastructure projects, including Eglin Field which became Eglin Air Force Base.Elisa continues to share information about the CCC with local clubs and organizations as a fundraising effort for a CCC Worker Statue to honor those young men who contributed to the foundation of our community.
