In the early 1800's Joseph Bonaparte gave a section of land to his nephew, Prince Napoleon François Lucien Charles Murat, the son of Napoleon’s brilliant cavalry officer Joachim Murat. The tract of land was between Evans Mills and Theresa, and he decided to build a city named after his father, Joachim. The endeavor was a failure. An inn, a store, a grist mill, and a bridge across the Indian River deteriorated was fell into ruin. Some still know this as Joachim, a “lost village”.

It is now an archeological dig.
