The story of Tallahassee
It is believed that the city was founded as the first settlement more than 14.5 thousand years ago. This is indicated by the ancient parking of people. It was discovered by archaeologists on the river bed of Aucilla. In 1513, Spanish ships approached the shores of the future Florida. They gave the name of the state and future cities. The year 1824 was officially considered the year of foundation of this city. But its name has been known since the 16th century thanks to the local Indian tribe Apache. The impact on the historical development of the city in many ways had the French and the British.
Currently, Tallahassee is an industrialized city. There are 2 major universities and their own hospitals. Its economy consists mainly of trade and services. It was most developed after 1845, when Florida was recognized by the American state of 27, and Tallahassee - its capital.
