Shalimar is a town in Okaloosa County, Florida, United States. The population was 717 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Fort Walton Beach–Crestview–Destin Metropolitan Statistical Area. Originally an area called Port Dixie, the town “sprang up out of the woods” in 1943-1944 as a community of 160 houses to be used as housing for military officers by developer Clifford H. Meigs.
During the Civil War [sic- First World War], 130 Germans operated a “dye” plant at Port Dixie, “actually an explosives factory and probably a submarine base as well.” Costly machinery was smashed when they fled and the records were thrown into Garnier’s Bayou.
