At the weedy intersection of Park Street and Elbow Lane, in a region of northwest St. Petersburg known as Jungle Prada, a nondescript white sign announces that Panfilo de Narvaez, the Spanish conquistador and explorer, landed there in 1528. Narvaez launched the first inland exploration of North America – by white Europeans – from the site.
Erected in 2003, when Jungle Prada was added to the National Register of Historic Places, the sign replaced another, even smaller marker, one that had been there for decades. Barely visible from the street, the sign misspelled the great adventurer’s name as Pamfilo.
