Tallahassee’s story stretches back millennia. Long before it became a bustling capital, the land teemed with Native American settlements. European influence arrived in the 16th century with the Spanish and in 1819, the United States acquired the territory.

In the 1820s, Tallahassee’s central location made it a natural choice for Florida’s capital. Tallahassee remained a modest town for much of the 19th and early 20th centuries before experiencing significant growth after World War II. Today, it’s a thriving metropolis that proudly preserves its rich heritage.
