Historic Tallahassee

Welcome to Historic Tallahassee

Tallahassee’s historic neighborhoods are primarily located near the Old Capitol and around Downtown Tallahassee. This was the center of business, commerce, and trade dating back to the Spanish War and the Reconstruction Era. Business travelers to the State Capitol enjoyed the Myers Park area, as it contained a few natural ponds and moss-draped oak parks, and they gathered here for both business and pleasure. Tallahassee’s oldest schools, the original Leon High School and Lincoln schools, were located here. Florida State Women’s College, now Florida State University, was in the historic downtown area, as well.

Today, historic Tallahassee neighborhoods remain popular with the younger generations, as well as those who appreciate history and art, and those who live, work, and play in the Downtown area on a daily basis. If you enjoy a quaint and charming yet urban lifestyle, one of these neighborhoods might be just what you’re looking for.
