Welcome and thank you for visiting my new page on the history of Gadsden County, Florida!
This beautiful county is located in the "Big Bend" region of Florida, just west of Tallahassee. Gadsden County is named for James Gadsden, a 19th century American soldier and diplomat, and was the fifth county established in Florida after the transfer of the territory from Spain to the United States. The county seat is Quincy.
The goal of this page is to share free information on the history, historic sites, folklore, culture and people of Gadsden County. I hope you will feel free to ask questions or make comments by using the "comment" feature available at the end of each post.
I will share articles and photographs throughout the week, so please check back in daily for the latest!
