Tallahassee
 Capital City of Florida

State Captial

Before the arrival of the Spanish, French, or English colonists to the North Florida area, the earliest inhabitants were the Apalachee Indians. These early settlers benefited from an abundance of natural resources and moderate climate to create a distinct and thriving culture.
 
During the mid 17th century, the Apalachee Indians and Spanish missionaries occupied the same site (San Luis de Talimali) as governmental and religious headquarters. Today this site is used as an open-air museum as well as an on-going archaeological site.
 
Tallahassee's modern roots were established in April 1824 when John McIver and party of six camped near the present day capital. A short time thereafter, Judge John Robinson and Sherrodd McCall began clearing land for what would become the site for the first legislative council building. On December 11, 1824 the area was officially named "Tallahassee" from the Muskogee word meaning "old town".
 
Tallahassee offers an interesting blend of the old and the new. Rolling hills, antebellum homes, and canopy roads open the window to the past. The history of the area is rich and invites one to take a closer look. Old plantations, such as Pebble Hill Plantation, located between Tallahassee and Thomasville, offer the visitor a unique experience of time gone by.
 
As the center of Florida's government and home to three universities and numerous high-tech enterprises, Tallahassee also has a cosmopolitan side.
