About Tallahassee, FL
Tallahassee's history is rich in Indian culture. In fact, the word "Tallahassee" is derived from Muskogean Indian word for "old fields" - which in turn was taken from the Seminole tribe of indians.
Tallahassee came to be while Florida was still nothing more then an American territory, slowly but surely making its way toward statehood. The people's and culture of the area were greatly influenced by the interaction of Native Americans with the British and Spanish colonists, the Seminole tribe in particular. The Seminoles were so influential in the development of this city that the Florida State University football team is named after the Seminole tribe. The team's mascot is the face of a Seminole Indian chief, adorned with feathers.
In 1824, Tallahassee was simultaneously inaugurated as a city and elected the state capital of Florida due to its convenient location between the major cities of St. Augustine and Pensacola. The Florida State Capitol building (picture above) was built to house the state government and legislature, around which the entire city grew. The Florida State Capitol is now a historic monument and museum for the city of Tallahassee.
