History

The founder of Navarre was Colonel Guy Wyman, colonel in the Army. His family used to visit the area, and they had purchased a lot of property. Wyman was in WWI where he met a lovely French nurse named Noel. He wanted to bring her back with him to the states to marry her, and the only way he could bring her back was to adopt her. So, he did. Noel had actually named Navarre after a providence in Spain near France. During the depression, they couldn’t pay the taxes on it. So they had to start selling it off. Part of that property is where the Navarre Park is today. Noel traveled to New York to teach French to earn money to pay the taxes.When she came back, Col. Wyman had taken a shining to another young lady. When the divorce was final, he told Noel not to set foot on his property. She came on his property allegedly to tend to a pet cemetery that she had, and Col Wyman shot her. He didn’t get in trouble because he had warned her. Col. Wyman’s parents were murdered in Navarre by the Roberts brothers. Apparently, the Roberts brothers thought the Wymans had a lot of money, tried to rob them and ended up murdering them. They were caught and then hung in Crestview.
